Vivienne Westwood, Sadie Frost, model Leebo Freeman and photographer Andy Gotts MBE launched Save The Arctic Exhibition at London Waterloo Underground Station with Greenpeace. “It was John Sauven’s brilliant idea to exhibit the images in Waterloo- using the escalators as a new art space in London - hundreds of people will be able to see the images. People all over the world understand that the Arctic melting will affect us all. If we’re to save it, the time to act is now. Last week even the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby added his voice by saying he was particularly concerned about the recent push to drill for oil in the Arctic Ocean. This drilling madness in the Arctic has to stop. There are 7 million people signed up to Save the Arctic, with global public opinion still growing- we need to continue this momentum until it becomes a torrent they can’t afford to ignore.” Vivienne Westwood said.
Kate Moss, George Clooney, Stella McCartney, Naomi Campbell, Rita Ora, Kylie Minogue, Lily Cole, Hugh Grant, Chris Martin, Jessie J and Pamela Anderson are just some of the 60 iconic celebrities captured by award-winning photographer Andy Gotts MBE in his innovative Save the Arctic public photography exhibition. This extraordinary collection of stars wearing Vivienne Westwood’s Save the Arctic t-shirt reflects a growing global call for protection of the unique and fragile Arctic. The gallery is situated in a takeover of the entire advertising space along escalators running up to the London HQ of oil company Shell, which is due to start drilling in the Arctic this month. The Save the Arctic collection is a set of 60 muted colour portraits shot over a period of eighteen months by Andy Gotts MBE MA, a celebrity photographer based in London and New York.
