Derek Ridgers is a long established English rock photographer. During the early Nineties Morrissey asked Ridgers if he could use his skinhead photos for backdrops & passes during the 'Your Arsenal' tour - and they were also used as the backdrop during the now infamous Finsbury Park 'Union jack' gig in '92.
Derek Ridgers currently has some of his original handprinted rock photos for sale on Ebay - including a photo (taken for NME) of MORRISSEY in 1984... in a cave! They are also signed by the photographer.

I've contacted Derek and he has more original photos of Morrissey/The Smiths, and which he may print in limited editions if there is enough interest from fans. Remember, these are original photos taken of Morrissey and directly printed from the original negatives! (And photographer signed)
Also, maybe if we asked nicely he will even print copies of the original skinhead photos! That would be so cool.
