London Riots, 1991

Riots in response to the Poll Tax, London, March, 1990


    One of the most obvious, though not necessarily simplest, tasks that Morris faces is not just capturing the drama of life-and-death moments, but also doing it in a visually powerful and immediate way. His challenge, and the challenge of any war shooter, he says, is to move into chaos and record in a simple, direct image.

"I want to try to produce quality war photography. I don't want to just go in there and put on the motor drive and start shooting everything that moves. I want to try and have my own style and my own vision."
