Brownsword Hepworth Gallery are pleased to announce an exhibition of previously unshown portraits by photographer Phil Griffin (24th October - 23rd November).


Unseen Icons brings together a series of intimate portraits, photographed across a 25 year period. Griffin's photographs often erase the preconceptions of these public and celebrated figures, capturing a sense of vulnerability and honesty, allowing the viewer a glimpse of the sitter's true self.

Griffin's work as a creative director within the entertainment industry meant he was able to forge close friendships with his sitters, who include Diana Ross, Amy Winehouse, Jon Bon Jovi, Adele, Sir Paul McCartney, HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Duke of Cambridge. He identified in each icon a shared trait - the desire to promote self-belief and self-worth in others. This motivation is at the heart of all of his photography and film work.

The exhibition is the first step of a wider project that aims to promote the wellbeing of young people through art and expression. A proportion of the proceeds will be donated to support The Princes Trust & Amy Winehouse Foundation programs.
