few years were filled with music, as Dennis broke from the mould of one-trick
music smudge and involved himself with making records. In 1984 he formed
drum & bass outfit Urban Shakedown, who were picked up by Paul Weller
to be the first release on his Respond label. His late 80s hip-hop outfit,
Boss, were later signed to Virgin Records and released 4 singles.
With a career spanning more than 20 years, and a c.v. that reads like a Who's Who of popular music and culture, Dennis Morris continues to photograph the leading musicians of the time such as Bush, Oasis and The Prodigy. Several books of his work have been published such as Bob Marley: A Rebel Life; he has held exhibitions in the UK, Japan and Canada, and his photographs have appeared in Rolling Stone, Time, People magazine, and the Sunday Times, amongst others.
Dennis Morris now lives in London with his wife and children. A professional photographer of high-regard, he is also involved with projects for the BBC and Channel 4.
