Alex Bartsch, a photographer and artist who's based out of Britain, went to the locations of where the artwork for some of the most pivotal reggae records were shot.

For the series, he takes along the vintage reggae records to London's streets -- where he compares the scenes on the artwork to those that exist today. In doing so, he shows the vibrancy of London's musical past, while revealing how similar most of the locations remain to what was captured so many years ago.

Included in the mix is Peter Tosh's 'BUK-IN-HAMM PALACE,' Freddie McGregor's 'Big Ship,' Jah Woosh's 'Religious Dread' and many more. By recapturing the reggae records in their original settings, Alex Bartsch celebrates the history of them while offering stunning comparative visuals.
