Inspired by the spirit captured in British social portraiture, Burberry’s September 2017 collection also features as part of the exhibition.
Works on display in France for the first time include:
- Photographs by Shirley Baker, Ken Russell, Colin Jones and Daniel Meadows
- A presentation of work by photographer Alasdair McLellan, featuring four bodies of work taken in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales
- Photographic prints and projections captured exclusively for Burberry by Russian fashion designer, photographer and filmmaker Gosha Rubchinskiy, alongside his Gosha x Burberry collection for spring 2018
The exhibition opens to the public on Friday 26 January for 10 days with a programme of events and activities.
