BRAN SYMONDSON x TERRY O'NEILL CBE HOLLYWOOD RE-LOADED Art Exhibition
Members are invited to the unveiling of an exciting and inspiring collaborative body of works titled Hollywood Re-Loaded, curated by unlikely artistic duo; one of the world's most collected photographer Terry O’Neill CBE and artistic genius Bran Symondson. The pair have come together to revolutionise the narrative of some of Terry’s most iconic photographs from his career.
The concept behind Hollywood Re-Loaded is to highlight the very present issue of gun crime and focus on how the perception of guns has changed dramatically over the years. When Terry originally captured these photographs each image presented a “cool” persona of the subject holding a gun, unlike in the present day where guns are considered to be violent weapons of destruction.
Complimentary drinks and canapés will be provided.
