Dennis Morris has been photographing London since he was a kid. In fact, he was just 11 years old when one of his images was printed on the front page of the Daily Mirror. He's famous for documenting the social and political upheaval of the city during the 1970s, as well as his photos of music legends including Bob Marley and the Sex Pistols. A show about his work with Public Image Ltd opens at the ICA this week. Here, he shares his own favourite photographs of the capital including 'Kids protesting over the closure of their squat' (1976), which made it into the 40 best photos of London ever taken – our definitive list of the city's best shots from the 1830s to today.
