'Fashion in the Mirror: Self-reflection in Fashion Photography' is a great exhibition, on at the Photographers' Gallery until 14 September, that gives a unique insight behind-the-scenes of fashion photography.

The exhibition includes images from internationally renowned photographers, Tim Walker, Juergen Teller, Irving Penn and Mario Testino, as well as from the late Norman Parkinson and Richard Avedon.

The photographers', 'undress the theatre of fashion and question the creation of perfect beauty' by focusing on the 'processes and paraphernalia' involved in a fashion shoot; from trade secrets to studio sets, creating intriguing and witty images.
