These first two pictures show me in 1981, the one below just before I had a skinhead and the one above after.

Keith, circa 1981 and again in Margate 2011. Taken on the Harbour wall, where Keith now sells his paintings, inspired by the work of JMW Turner. The Turner Contemporary Gallery was named after Turner, who lived and worked in the town, painting some of his most famous work from a spot on or near where the gallery now sits. Keith was a friend of mine back in the 1980s.
Dennis Morris was highly adept at capturing the emerging black subculture in late 1960s and early 1970s London, as he was a teenager as it was growing. From sound systems to street fashions, he caught it all. He also captured life around in him in Hackney before going on to photograph the Sex Pistols and Bob Marley (his two most famous jobs) and choose acts for Island Records. I interviewed him last month for the Daily Telegraph. Only a few of the words made it to the web, but you want to see the photos anyway!
