BEING sees several personalities, some of which

are well-known, reflecting on what it is to BE...

“BEING is my antidote to the soundbite world.

We have become so risk averse, so intent on

controlling our output...

"People no longer feel that they can be who they

really are but that they have to conform to a

stereotype. The portraits provide them with a rare

moment to just BE themselves.” said Polly Steele.
