Featuring over two hundred works by modern and contemporary photographers including Martin Parr, Bill Brandt, Charlie Phillips, Karen Knorr and Brian Griffin, Here We Are presents one of the largest shows of British social portraiture heads before the showcase of the brand’s new collection. Held at Burberry’s new show venue – the Old Sessions House –, and curated by Christopher Bailey – the brand’s chief creative officer –, Lucy Moore and British photographer Alasdair McLellan, the show will also bring the photographer’s largest number of works shown up to date from September 18 to October 1.

“When we started thinking about curatin Here We Are, I knew I wanted to celebrate a certain strand of British photography that I have always loved – one which documents the many and varied tribes and clans and classses that make up this island of ours”, states Bailey. This mix and variety that conform what we know today as British style is what visitors will enjoy at the Old Sessions House in Clerkenwell, an eighteenth century former courthouse which will open to the public for the first time since its restoration. This show will also bring a tailored programme of events and activities with the artists, such as a talk and book signing with Karen Knorr and Oliver Richon that will take place throughout the introductory week of the exhibition. But for people who don’t have the patience or the opportunity to be there, you can digitally explore the works featured in the exhibition through the Burberry app.

Here We Are will open from September 18 to October 1 every day from 10am to 9pm at the Old Sessions House, 22 Clerkenwell Green, Clerkenwell, London.
