Reggae Record Covers: Photo Series by Alex Bartsch

Published Nov 30, 2016

In his latest project, “Covers: Retracing Reggae Record Sleeves in London” photographer Alex Bartsch has thoroughly researched and identified the original locations of the cover photos on 42 reggae records. He then proceeded to photograph them on location.

“By meticulously matching the record sleeves with their background, Alex has created a fascinating series that represents not only serious patience and eye for detail on his part, but also paints a picture of the history of London’s reggae scene.

The records were originally photographed in various, largely obscure places around London between 1967–1987, and were selected for the project by Alex from his own record collection. To find the shoot locations Alex and Al Newman – founder of One Love Books which is aiming to publish the series – embarked on an arduous investigation to track down the artists, label owners, photographers and anyone else involved.”

Alex is currently running a campaign on Kickstarter to turn the project into a book. More details here.
