With London Fashion Week only a week away, London-based fashion house Burberry couldn’t have announced its new exhibition Here We Are at a better time.

Curated by CEO of Burberry, Christopher Bailey, Lucy Kumara Moore of Claire de Rouen, and co-curated by British photographer Alastair McLellan, Here We Are will bring together the work of over “30 of the 20th century’s most celebrated social and documentary photographers.” 

In a short video posted on Burberry’s Instagram Christopher Bailey explains how the exhibition came about and further details stating:

“When we started thinking about curating ‘Here We Are’ I knew I wanted it to celebrate a certain strand of British photography that I've always loved--one which documents the many and varied tribes, clams and classes that make up this island of ours.” 

The exhibition will be revealed at Burberry’s new September show space Old Sessions House in Clerkenwell, which hasn’t been opened since being closed to the public for over 100 years.

Here We Are will debut in London from September 18 and wrap October 1. You can expect to see three floors of never-before-seen prints by some of London’s most coveted photographers like Shirley Baker and Ken Russell.
