Growing Up Black By Dennis Morris

Predominantly known for his music photography - having documented icons such as Bob Marley and the Sex Pistols - In this photobook, Dennis Morris shares an in sight into growing up as a young black man in London during the 1960s.

"Alongside the music stuff, I was also taking photographs at a pivotal time for black people in Britain, politically and culturally. Suddenly we weren't coloured people any more – we were black. It was a question of pride and of self-definition. I see it now as a pioneering time, a time of great struggle and change." - Dennis Morris
