''Under the Influence: John Deakin and the Lure of Soho, explores the hidden corners and colourful characters of 1950s and early 60s London Soho, as seen through the eyes of John Deakin (1912 - 1972).

Considered to be one of the greatest postwar British photographers, Deakin was renowned for his penetrating portraits, haunting street scenes and striking fashion work.''
