Sid Vicious is one of the dominant symbols of punk rock and he embodies cliches of rebellion and self-destruction in ways that I look at as cautionary now but I saw as an exciting form of non-conformity as a teen.

Dennis Morris captured both candid images of Sid and Sid as an over-the-top character and performer. I’m excited about this series because I think it presents Sid in multiple dimensions. – Shepard
