Bob Marley was known for his part in the legendary reggae band The Wailers as well as his signature style in music but the dreadlocked Rasta was a football fanatic too.

One of Marley’s childhood home, Trench Town, was an infamous city known for its war torn streets and rudies – young boys who always got into trouble with the law. Football and music were the ways that Marley hoped to inspire the youth and keep them off the streets.

Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina.

Last year I took part in Photographia, a project that encouraged the use of cameras from the volt of Museu da Imagem em Movimento (M|i|mo).
