Lend Me Your Ear

An exciting body of work created by photographer Andrew Cotterill and Illustrator Ben Tallon is exhibiting in London this month.

Lend Me Your Ear is a collaboration between music photographer Andrew Cotterill and illustrator Ben Tallon, in association with Young Urban Arts Foundation and CALM. Exhibiting at Stance Covent Garden from May 24th - 6th June, the show hits you with powerful photographic portraits of some well-known faces, dressed with Ben's hand-crafted lettering. The organisers say, "This series of images is a celebration of individuality, human energy and creativity. It is a love letter to self-expression, depicting music artists who never attempted to hide the true essence of their character, succeeding because of it and inspiring millions of people along the way. This project brings Cotterill and Tallon together from two very different generations to explore the magic that attracted them to music and the unique personalities who make it so special. It is also a reminder to those who are lost and beaten down by the frightening pace of modern life to remember that the strongest of identities can only be found inside. That never changes."
