Growing Up Black by Dennis Morris

Best known for his photographs of Bob Marley, Dennis Morris' new book of photographs is of Black Britons/West Indians in Hackney in the 1970s. Morris grew up in that part of east London.This is a beautifully crafted quality photographic publication and includes a signed print. Published by Autograph ABP, it is £300. I hope that Autograph also creates an exhibition of this work, as it would be fantastic to see them as gorgeous big format prints too.

Photo's below from The Sunday Times magazine (15 April), sorry about the quality of these - I did my best, there are more images behind the Sunday Times pay wall.
