Bob Salzman R.I.P.

Greetings all on the Board tonight....

I have just had some sad news by way of Warren Caldwell that Photographer Bob Salzman has passed away.

I don't think I have ever been to a SNWMF without seeing him there. He will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear this. Warren tried to reach me last night and now I know why. May Bob's amazing works stand firm as part of his legacy. He will be missed by so many people but none the least, other reggae photographers who have become a family of their own, and love and respect our fellow comrades. May prayers of strength surround Bob's friends and family.

Does anyone have a photo of Bob to share? I tried to find one in my archives and did not. It might be nice at SNWMF to get all the photographers together for a group photo. one love

Greetings all on the board this afternoon,

All my archives are in storage up North so I can't get to them for a while.

I was looking through my ARTISTS folders on Facebook, Myspace and Photobucket to see if I just happened to get him in the shot and had to stop looking as the memories of people we have lost, Alton Ellis, Joseph Hill to name a few over took me and on top of the loss of such a happy face so young was too much. Warren Caldwell has some nice shots of Bob on his Facebook site.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family. His works will keep him alive.....

It would be appropriate for some of us reggae photographers to say a few words between sets about the two legendary photographers lost this last year....Bob and Diane. I would be willing to speak on behalf of Diane. Or maybe even a candle light tribute at some point on the grounds..?

Agree with this absolutely!!!!!!!!!!

Bob was a really great guy and what I liked most about him is he didn't specialize in those "microphone up to mouth on stage" photos so many far lesser photographers revert to. Anyone can get a picture of someone on stage with a mic in their face...Mr Salzmans work far transcended that weak genre. RIP Bob...one of the first veterans to truly strike me as an exceedingly nice person as well as a great pro photographer.

ok
