Forever loving Jamaica: Travel Weekly

Artist, photographer, film director, musician. Lee Jaffe has comfortably inhabited all these roles in many parts of the world, but his attachment to Jamaica, where he was, for a period, a member of Bob Marley’s band, the Wailers, led him back to the island more than 200 times over the past 40 years. His photography of Jamaica and recommendations of what to see and do provide an unusual insider’s guide to the island in the latest installment of Travel Weekly’s Masters Series.

In 1972, before reggae music became the soundtrack for every Caribbean vacation and when few people outside of Jamaica recognized the name Bob Marley, a 22-year-old American multimedia artist, photographer, musician and film director named Lee Jaffe arrived in London, hoping to persuade expatriate Jamaican actress Esther Anderson to be in a film he wanted to make in Chile.
