A founding member of a fashion photography collective whose work was made famous by Culture Club, Neneh Cherry and Soul II Soul inspired the next generation on a college visit.

Jamie Morgan, who gained recognition for his work with the Buffalo collective, shared his expertise with Barking and Dagenham College students.
