Somerset House | ★★★★☆

Beards are big. Literally. You can’t walk down Kingsland Road without being tickled by the bristles of a hirsute gentleman. And now you can’t walk through the grand exhibition space of Somerset House without a beard to the retina.
Style photographer Mr Elbank has a new exhibition showcasing the magnificence of the beard, with dozens of portraits of waxed, dreadlocked, scruffy and chic examples of chin rugs. Not to be missed by anyone with a penchant for facial foliage.
