‘One of the greatest music photographers of all time…this book is indispensable to anyone who is a fan of Morrissey, or of great photography ‘Classic Pop magazine ‘Unsurprisingly, given Cummin’s history, the photographs are beautifully composed, from the live shots with their webbing of shredded shirts and outstretched arms to the lyrical portraits on staircases or Japanese streets’Q  Magazine Taken by renowned photographer Kevin Cummins and featuring hundreds of previously unseen images, Alone and Palely Loitering chronicles Morrissey’s world as he emerged from The Smiths and established himself as a solo artist.
