Dennis Morris: Life through a Lens

Hackney born photographer Dennis Morris reflects upon his remarkable career.

Hackney born photographer Dennis Morris was just 11 years old when one of his photographs was printed on the front page of The Daily Mirror. He was invited to photograph Bob Marley and The Wailers on tour whilst still a teenager and was subsequently asked by Johnny Rotten to take the first official shots of the Sex Pistols. With a career spanning more than 20 years, Dennis Morris has photographed some of the leading musicians of the time such as Bush, Oasis and The Prodigy.

Several books of his work have been published; he has held exhibitions in the UK, Japan and Canada, and his photographs have appeared in Rolling Stone, Time, People and The Sunday Times, amongst others.

In conversation with Renée Mussai, Archive Project Manager at Autograph ABP, Dennis Morris reflects on his remarkable career and his impressions and memories of growing up in East London. He will discuss some of his documentary exhibitions of every day life in East London including Growing up Black, an autobiographical work documenting his upbringing among the Afro-Caribbean community in and around Hackney and The Happy Breed which captures his life as a child in the East End in the 60s and 70s.
