First Look at the Burberry Campaign that Brooklyn Beckham Shot

Remember when Brooklyn Beckham stirred up a storm when he was chosen over hordes of illustrious photographers to shoot for Burberry Brit fragrances? The son of British footballer, David Beckham and Spice Girl-turned-fashion-designer, Victoria Beckham was even accused of nepotism. One could hardly blame the critics since the younger Beckham had not earned the merit to shoot for such an established brand. 

Burberry defended their choice of photographer and went ahead as planned. Here, we have the first look at the campaign images, with the ads slated to launch only in January 2017.

Art critic, Jonathan Jones found it hard to compare the photos against others' work, because they showed "zero artistic distinction".

"In each image, young men and women are juxtaposed clad in the very height of fashion and looking very lovely, in a slightly bland way. [...] As art, however, these photographs do not exist."
