Photographer Spends 10 Years Tracking Over 60 Original Locations Of Vinyl Covers It all started when photographer Alex Bartsch one day noticed that a record he owned - Joe's All Stars Brixton Cat - was filmed just down the street.

 He grabbed the disk and his camera and photographed it on the original background. Thus began a strange search: find the classic reggae sleeves fired in and around London and bring them back to their original position. Alex Bartsch has spent the last ten years photographing the original locations of some of his favorite reggae vinyl covers holding each sleeve up to one arm, combining the past and the present in and around London.

 The records were originally photographed in various dark places around London between 1967 and 1987 Some of the artists included in his book Covers: Retracing Reggae Record Sleeves in London include Bob Marley & The Wailers, Alton Ellis, Peter Tosh, Delroy Wilson and more. To date, the artist has re-photographed more than 60 sleeves in their original positions, keeping them at arm's length to blend them with the setting.

 The images indicate the passage of time and allow an interesting insight into the history of reggae music in London. Alex has created a fascinating project with an eye for detail, but also the history of the London reggae scene.

The artist is now raising funds for publication on Kickstarter. Some works of the project will be exhibited at Art Basel Miami in December.
