Photographer Syphilia Morgenstierne published a little-known book titled REGGAE in 1979.  The book was published only in Norwegian and summarized  Morgenstierne’s first trip to Jamaica in 1978 at the age of 25.

In my opinion, these rare images are the most stunning photos I’ve ever seen chronicling the golden age of reggae.
