Unseen images of the most photographed people on the planet

Having worked as a photographer in the film and TV industry for a quarter of a century, Phil Griffin's latest project, aims to highlight the impact of fame and fortune on those who experience it, and reveal the true faces of some of the best known people on the planet.


The exhibition features the likes of Amy Winehouse, Britney Spears , as well as Prince William and Sir Paul McCartney.


Phil was given the approval of each sitter to release the images and will be raising money for The Princes Trust and The Amy Winehouse Foundation via the sales of some of the portraits.

One of Phil's most recognised photographs was used as the front cover of Amy Winehouse’s US edition of Back to Black which sold over 3 million copies in the States. An alternative of this image, shot from a different angle, has pride of place in the exhibition.

Unseen Icons is the first exhibition to feature in the newly renovated and expanded Brownsword Hepworth Gallery, which has now become Chelsea's largest commercial gallery.


Unseen Icons by Phil Griffin is open at the Brownsword Hepworth Gallery in Knightsbridge, until November 23rd.
