Breaks are a good thing. We all need to hit pause button once and a while. Breaks give you a chance to miss things. Breaks give you a chance to think. Breaks give you a chance asess. They give you a chance to recharge. When you are constantly "on" you tend to loose focus and it shows in your work. Everybody deserves a break. During my break from you all I've been working my 9 to 5, being a Daddy/Husband having a blast with my angels and I started managing a rock band. I have been exposed to some of the dopest creativity over the past few months and my juices are flowing again. I have to get them out and what a better way than to share in a post. So welcome back I promise it all will be worth the wait....

“Once we were colored – then we became Black. Then we became proud ’cause we said it loud. We came from the back of the bus to owning the bus. Martin Luther King had a dream, we are now the reality. Obama said: ‘Yes we can.’ He did, and we will. History The Sex Pistolshas been made, history has been written. Growing Up Black is a chronicle of the making of a community, a mirror of how we started and how far we came. We have to keep pushing, keep building, keep the faith” – Dennis Morris
Best known for his music photography – including Bob Marley, Marianne Faithful, , Radiohead, Goldie, and The Prodigy – Dennis Morris starting taking photos at a young age while he was given a camera when in his church choir in London.

A beautiful study in simplistic imagery with an important undertone, here are a few shots from his upcoming release,
