Legends of British Industry celebrates key names from the worlds of fashion, finance, journalism and entertainment. In 2017, British photographer Zoë Law (b.1975) began a series of portraits as a personal tribute to the people whom she ‘considered to be British legends - industry leaders, icons of the creative industries, sports stars and others’. The series features renowned figures of stage and screen alongside unsung heroes, such as voice coaches and charity leaders, each photographed in a setting uniquely conceived by the artist.
The series is dedicated to Maggie’s, a charity providing free cancer support and information to help people live well with cancer, and many of the sitters featured in the display are passionate supporters of the organisation.
