There is a David Beckham photography exhibition coming to London!

The works will be on view at Phillips’ European Headquarters at 30 Berkeley Square in London from Saturday, 27 February until they are sold at auction on Thursday, 10 March. 

The event, titled, ‘David Beckham: The Man’, offers an insight into Beckham’s influence in the worlds of sport, fashion and culture.

“This wonderful project in support of my own 7 Fund at UNICEF and Positive View Foundation will help create change for children and disadvantaged young people around the world,” said Beckham. 

Part of a three-year global philanthropic programme, the event is part of a high profile three-year global philanthropic programme and exhibition of signed contemporary photography featuring and celebrating David Beckham. This inaugural and high-profile event features more than 50 original signed works, some previously unseen, by 27 internationally acclaimed photographers including: Annie Leibovitz, Inez & Vinoodh, Mert & Marcus, Mario Sorrenti, Peter Lindbergh, Sam Taylor-Johnson and Steven Klein.  Work has been specially commissioned for David Beckham: The Man from Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Nadav Kander and Tessa Traeger.  

As the exhibition’s curator, Kathy Adler, explained: “David Beckham is the quintessential modern man, his fame far exceeding that of a sportsman. He is universally recognised, an icon of modern masculinity and a magnet for photographers. His appeal is ubiquitous: he is happy being a gay icon, a teenage idol, a spokesperson for sport [and] a UNICEF goodwill ambassador.”

‘David Beckham: The Man’ is at Phillips, 30 Berkeley Square, London W1 from 27 February. The auction takes place on 10 March.
