Henry Reichhold is renowned for capturing the true spirit of all of his subjects, be it members of the English National Ballet, cityscapes or large panoramic images. His work has taken him around the world and most recently he was asked to photograph positive aspects of life in Lagos, Nigeria.
Reichhold decided to turn his attention to Lagos Fashion Week to highlight its atmosphere, creativity and unique style. Rather than focus on traditional fashion and catwalk photography, Reichold explored what went on backstage and front of house to get a true view of the event. Through the heat and constant power cuts, the make-up artists carried out their craft by mobile phone light whilst photographers out front displayed pure solidarity as they crammed into the too tight space allocated to them by security.
The dazzling colours, the orchestrated chaos and the vibrancy of Lagos fashion week as captured by Reichhold is on display at Heathrow Terminal 5 from today (19th July) and will run for eight weeks.

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
