Arthur Gorson’s collaboration with iconic creative personalities, and extensive travel assignments, have provided unique access for his still cameras. His early photographs intimately documented the musical culture and lives of residents of an isolated community in the hills of western North Carolina, (the stories he collected became the source for a feature film developed by Tony Scott.) His classic images of Bob Marley are widely published; and have appeared on album covers for “Taking Blues,” the 2019 re-release of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ “Lively Up Yourself,” as well as art for multiple Marley re-issues including the deluxe CD/Album edition of “Catch a Fire.”

His photographs have been featured in publications such as Rolling Stone Magazine, as well as numerous books including: Songs of Freedom by Adrian Boot and Chris Salewicz, and Taschen Books Bob Marley/ Music Icon. In film & TV his stills have been featured in Kevin Macdonald’s biopic Marley, MTV’s Behind The Music, A Filmmakers Odyssey, and Shout!Factory’s the Harder They Come: Collector’s Edition.

Mr. Gorson’s art print collection is represented by Sam Milgrom of the prestigious MusicHead Gallery.
