We joined acclaimed Photographer Alistair Guy on Wednesday Evening for the preview of Strong Women a collection of portraits portraying inspiring women from every generation. The series of intriguing photographs explores powerful female icons from the fashion, film, and music world.
Alistair comments: "Women mentally are terribly strong but they are also fragile. I believe there is an incredible beauty in this dichotomy". Melanie Griffith is a central figure in the exhibition, alongside
Savannah Miller, Tilly Wood and more.
