**About the exhibitor**
Dennis Morris started his career at an early age. He was 11 years old when one of his photographs was printed on the front page of the Daily Mirror.
It was whilst bunking off school to wait for Bob Marley to arrive for sound check at the Speak Easy Club on Margaret Street (London), that Dennis’ music photography career really began. His photographs of Marley and The Wailers became famous the world over, appearing on the cover of Time Out and Melody Make. It was Dennis’ photos of Marley that caught the eye of the young Johnny Rotten. Rotten, a massive reggae fan requested that he take the first official shots of the Sex Pistols upon signing to Virgin Records. For a year, Dennis trailed the band, taking hundreds of undisputed classic shots of the band.
With a career spanning more than 20 years, and a c.v. that reads like a Who’s Who of popular music and culture, Dennis Morris continues to photograph the leading musicians of the time such as Oasis, RadioHead, Drum & Bass maestro Goldie, Supergrass, Towers of London, Pushin and The Prodigy to name a few.
Several books of his work have been published such as Bob Marley: A Rebel Life.
He has held exhibitions worldwide (Sydney Opera House, Laforet Museum Tokyo, Contact Toronto and in galleries in London, New York, Paris, San Francisco, Stuttgart …).
He was commissioned to show a new body of work at the Today Art Museum in Beijing in 2008 to coincide with the Olympic Cultural programme.
A large installation of his punk images (part of the “I am a cliché, Echoes of the Punk Aesthetic” exhibition curated by Emma Lavigne) wass displayed at the 41st Rencontres d’Arles (France) during the summer of 2010.
His photographs have become highly collectable, including one body of work (“Southall – a home from home”) bought by English Heritage, on permanent display at the “Gunnersbury Park Museum” in London. “Growing Up Black” a collection of his photographs from the Black community in Hackney is also part of the permanent collection of the Hackney Museum, London. The V&A has also acquired a series of works from the “Growing Up Black” collection.
His photographs have appeared in numerous prestigious publications including: Rolling Stone, Time, People magazine, V magazine, GQ, I-D, Vogue and the Sunday Times, amongst others.
His work has been used in books such as:” Lipstick Traces”, a secret history of the 20th century by Marcus Griel, published by Harvard University Press; “Century”, by Bruce Bernard, published by Phaidon Press; “Punk” by Steven Colgrave and Chris Sullivan; “Rolling Stone: The complete covers 1967-1997…"
