New Burberry exhibition co-curated by Alasdair McLellan

Here We Are features the work of over 30 documentary photographers including Martin Parr, Brian Griffin and Dafydd Jones

Since joining the new wave of see-now-buy-now brands, Burberry has been making a case for merging the worlds of art, fashion and photography. Following the most recent collections, the show space has been transformed into an exhibition that gives more context to the initial inspiration. 

Announced today is Here We Are – the British label’s newest exhibition – that will focus on the work of more than 30 of the best social and documentary photographers from the past century. The exhibition is curated by President and chief creative officer of Burberry Christopher Bailey and Lucy Kumara Moore with photographer Alasdair McLellan as their co-curator – who will have over 70 of his images featured. Other featured photographers include  Martin Parr, Dafydd Jones, Brian Griffin and Ken Russell.

In a move from Maker’s House – the home of the brand’s past two collections and accompanying exhibitions – Here We Are will be held over three floors at Old Sessions House in Clerkenwell. The venue will double up as the show space for the upcoming show on September 16 at LFW. Following the show, the collection will be available to purchase online and will also be featured at the exhibition.

On top of all of that, McLellan has also a created a photo-project for Burberry that will be on display at the exhibition and released over the next couple of months. 

Here We Are is open from September 18 - October 1 at Old Sessions House, 22 Clerkenwell GreenLondon, EC1
