Dennis Morris: Public Image Ltd

The British photographer and designer Dennis Morris documented the post-punk group Public Image Ltd during their early years

An exhibition of photographs of the band Public Image Ltd (PiL) by the British photographer Dennis Morris is due to open at the ICA, London.

Dennis Morris: PiL - First Issue to Metal Box follows band members John Lydon, Keith Levene, Jah Wobble and Jim Walker during the years 1978-1979.

The period encompasses the formation of the group after the end of the Sex Pistols, their influential journey to Jamaica and the release of their post-punk classic Metal Box in 1979.

Morris designed the sleeve for the band's debut single ‘Public Image’ and first two albums Public Image: First Issue and Metal Box, which came in a metal 16mm celluloid film canister.
