Bob Marley, 1975
Kim Gottlieb-Walker’s incredibly varied career has covered everything from classic rock and roll, reggae and politics in the 60’s and 70’s to working on major motion pictures and television shows.
While still at UCLA (where she received a BA in Motion Picture production) and shortly thereafter, she shot for underground LA newspapers and magazines like Crawdaddy and Music World. Her classic portraits of Jimi Hendrix were shot when she was only 20 and her High Times cover of Bob Marley remains their most popular cover, ever. She also shot the stills for John Carpenter’s “Halloween,” “The Fog,” “Christine” and Escape from New York” and worked at Paramount for nine years as the production photographer for “Cheers” and five years for “Family Ties” as well as the pilots and several episodes of Star Trek:"The Next Generation" and "Deep Space 9" and Steven Spielberg's "Amazing Stories" at Universal.
She was one of the elected representatives for still photographers on the National Executive Board of IATSE Local 600, the International Cinematographers Guild for three decades. Her coffee-table photo book "Bob Marley and the Golden Age of Reggae" was published by Titan Press (UK) distributed by Random House (USA) in November 2010 and she had her first solo gallery show of photos from the book in London at the PROUD Camden in 2011. Her first USA solo gallery show was at the K&M Gallery in Los Angeles in 2014. Her novel "Lenswoman" will be published sometime next year. Her work can also be found at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in the Sunset Marquis in W. Hollywood and Sugarmynt Gallery in S. Pasadena.
