The Inheritance Project is a documentary portraiture series, created by photographer Hayley Benoit and stylist Hannah Newman, winners of the Ideastap Innovators Fund 2013. After a successful run in Shoreditch, the exhibition is moving to HOUSE gallery for a two-week slot.

The project focuses on the relationship between parent and child, the features and characteristics we inherit and the changing of fashions over time.

“The idea as a whole was triggered from watching how the style of friends and family has evolved over the years,” says Hayley, “and how they appeared to be transforming very much into their parents.”

The subjects are dressed as their parent, when their parent was of a similar age, channeling fashion trends from the 1960s to the 1990s.

Hannah and Hayley have a connection through fashion and are known for their fashion editorials, inspired by analogue snapshots and vintage fashion. Their work has previously featured in i-D online, The Girl Mag, Art Wednesday, Disorder magazine and STOP magazine.

Camberwell College of Arts Students – Secret Auction

May 6, 2014, 11:11 am // Sarah

Secret Auction


At Secret Auction the bidding will be silent and the artists will be a secret. You are invited by the third year Illustration students of Camberwell College of Arts to donate artwork to the auction.

All proceeds from Secret Auction will be put towards the realisation of In Place, to be held at Copeland Gallery, Peckham, this Summer.

In Place is an exhibition that will showcase a rich variety of works presenting the diverse application of Illustration today, hosted by over 50 graduates. Notions of community and place are central to the show, which will bring workshops, talks and events to the community of Peckham.

The ‘lots’ at Secret Auction will be made up of both well-known and lesser known artists and seeks to promote
the creative community that surrounds us. Through auctioning a variety of works, we hope to reflect the intentions of In Place whilst creating an exciting evening of auctioneering and fun!

We hope you will consider donating work to Secret Auction – no matter how big, small, old or new, we would be entirely grateful.

Thank you.

In Place
