Dennis Morris: Growing Up Black
Library Shelf Location 18.MORR
Publication Date 2012

Growing Up Black is a beautifully designed, thought-provoking monograph which documents domestic life in Hackney, East London during the 1960s and 70s.

Morris moved to Hackney with his family when he was four, and began his career as a photographer aged just 11 years old, when one of his images was printed on the front page of the Daily Mirror. He has since photographed some of the most iconic musicians of the past 50 years, including Bob Marley, The Sex Pistols, The Stone Roses, Oasis and Radiohead. A number of his photographs are in the collection at the V&A Museum in London, and a selection of the photos from Growing Up Black are part of the permanent collection at the Hackney Museum.

These images from his extensive archive capture intimate moments within the black community, recording the history of the first generation to call themselves black.
