Westfield photo show salutes diversity
To celebrate the diverse community in Shepherds Bush, the Westfield mall has commissioned photographer and resident Cinzia D’Ambrosi to produce a series of portraits marking Black History Month.
An exhibition space has been created on the ground floor, between Monsoon and Jack Wills, where the photographs are now displayed, capturing the stories behind local families and their ancestry under the banner My Heritage. The show is free, and will remain up until the end of October.

A tour commemorating the trailblazers of black musical history has been set-up in H&F to recognise the local people and places that formed our culture.
