His greatest hits album ‘Legend‘ has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide.

Bob Marley stencil in Villa Devoto, Buenos Aires

We didn’t realise at the time but we came across this One Love stencil in Villa Devoto and it happened to be Bob Marley’s birthday the same day. Following his death on 11 May 1981 aged just 36 after suffering from a form of malignant melanoma, his appeal has continued to spread worldwide. It seems Marleys’ music is pretty popular in Argentina too. Here are a few more images we’ve photographed around Buenos Aires. Happy Birthday Bob!
