Dennis Morris
MPF Photochat Live

Photographer Dennis Morris began his career taking pictures of musician Bob Marley. He skipped school in order to wait for Marley to arrive for soundcheck at the Speak Easy Club in London, following which he was invited to join Marley for the remainder of his tour.

Morris went on to extensively document the 1980s punk scene and many iconic bands, including Sex Pistols and The Stone Roses.

In the next MPF Photochat Live event Dennis Morris will give an overview of his career and share an insight into his photographic projects, including ‘Growing up Black’.

This is a part of the MPF Events Programme coinciding with the current exhibition – The Station, by Chris Killip – continuing to explore subculture of the same era.
