Kate has work in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, the National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The Bob Marley Museum, and the Andy Warhol Museum.

In 2004, Simon published a limited-edition book of her photographs of Bob Marley and Jamaica titled: Rebel Music, with Genesis Publications.

Simon's photography has appeared on countless book jackets, record covers and in publications around the world. She has created numerous timeless photographs that define the subject and their part in modern popular culture.


'This collection of timeless photographs gives us an up close inside look at this uniquely complex man and brilliant iconic artist who forever changed the world. One love...' - Lenny Kravitz
'No one will ever forget the impact Bob and Jamaican music had on the world.' - Keith Richards'Kate Simon has always been one of my favourite photographers. She captures intimate moments that we have never seen.' - Cedella Marley'After looking at thousands of negatives of Bob, some of which I had never printed before, I had a dream that Bob was still alive and that he was playing that night. Can you imagine if you could have the chance to see Bob Marley today? What would he be singing about?' - Kate Simon'Kate shot in an honest, direct manner. She did not seek to expose, but to shoot the picture her subject pictured - the joyful, mutable moments. How fortunate we are to have these images.' - Patti Smith 'She had a sort of war correspondent feel to her; she would get right into it. Somehow she had the ability to communicate and to get everybody to relax and to take the great pictures that she got.' - Chris Blackwell
