Growing Up Black

Dennis Morris is a photographer, designer and musician previously known to me through his photographs of Bob Marley and The Sex Pistols.
However he was also a fine documentary photographer as witnessed by his book ‘Growing up Black’ a chronicle of his East London neighborhood during the sixties and seventies.
A snapshot of an era that has become increasingly important in helping understand the roots of multicultural Britain.
