Marvin Gaye photographed by Ed Caraeff in Van Nuys, California on March 28, 1976.

Ed Caraeff: “Marvin was one of a very few I photographed that I was in awe of meeting. I was a big fan. He was not in a good mood, going thru a divorce, obligated to release an album by his father in law’s (Berry Gordy) record company. Motown hired me to ‘replicate a place in Jamaica that Marvin had just returned from.’ The photographs were never published. The cover used on Here, My Dear is a funky b & w illustration.”

[Correction: Berry Gordy was his brother in law, Marvin was married to his sister Anna Gordy]
