No Woman No Cry…..

I was in Jamaica shooting for Marley Coffee last month when I came across this man, Georgie. As in Georgie who’s featured in Bob Marley’s song, No Woman, No Cry. How cool is that!!? Evidently, prior to Bob’s death in 1981, he promised Georgie that he would always have a home. So now Georgie lives on the grounds of the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston. It was an honor to meet and photograph Georgie!

  • And then Georgie would make the fire lights,
  • I seh, logwood burnin’ through the nights, yeah!
  • Then we would cook cornmeal porridge, say,
  • Of which I’ll share with you, yeah!
  • My feet is my only carriage
  • And so I’ve got to push on through.
  • Oh, while I’m gone,
  • Everything’s gonna be all right!
