An intimate portrait of The Stone Roses
THIS IS The One, published by Who Said It Publishing, offers an exclusive glimpse into the world of The Stone Roses.
Internationally recognised photographer Dennis Morris visually records both behind-the scenes material and classic stage footage alongside intimate studio portraits, and documents two iconic events in the history of music with never-before-seen images.
From July 13 to July 19, 2012, an exhibition of images featured in the book will also be on display at Londonewcastle, 28 Redchurch Street, London, E2 7DP in which Dennis Morris will reinvent the festival era of Spike Island and Glasgow Green in the gallery space.
Limited to an edition of 1000 with over 250 unseen images and a signed silver gelatin print by Dennis Morris, This Is The One, priced at £295 and available from July, provides both an extraordinary view into the intoxicating world of The Stone Roses as well as a chapter of history charting fashions and trends of the 1990s for passionate fans and intrigued onlookers alike.

Morris’ images capture the visceral hysteria of the fans and unforgettable fashions of the time at Spike Island and Glasgow Green, both pivotal moments in the band’s history. Both concerts made epic impacts on future movements by crafting mass gatherings of youths and the return of a 1960s hallucinogenic type of crowd. Spike Island, although considered to be a failure at the time due to sound quality, is now perceived as ‘Woodstock for a baggy generation’.
With a career spanning more than 20 years, and a CV that reads like a Who’s Who of popular music and culture, Dennis Morris has photographed some of the most iconic musicians of the time including Bob Marley, Marianne Faithful, the Sex Pistols, Public Image Limited, The Stone Roses, Oasis, Radiohead, Goldie, and The Prodigy.
He has exhibited worldwide and had his work published in numerous prestigious titles as well as several standalone publications, including Growing Up Black, a photographic record of inner city London in the 60s and 70s. His photographs are highly collectable and are owned by the V&A and English Heritage.
