Every single print in Annie Leibovitz’s exhibition mixes up a kaleidoscope of ingredients with a dash of creative flair - just like the perfect cocktail creation.
She’s masterfully captured her subject’s emotions, personality and identity and shaken them up into a single shot.
The result is perfectly balanced portraits which scream with personality, hint at hidden stories and keep you coming back for more.
Spread across canvasses and digital screens, the exhibition is simply stunning.
Underpinned by a throbbing desire to promote girl power, the dozen or so striking portraits show the strength of their subjects as well as the stories they want to tell.
Or, indeed, the lack of any story at all.
What’s clear is the comfort of the subjects in their surroundings coupled with Annie’s desire to capture them in their ‘natural’ habitat.
This makes viewing a pleasure - and almost guarantees a two-hour chunk of your day will be spend inside the Wapping landmark.
Even visitors who steer clear of celeb culture will find themselves drawn to the image of Caitlyn Jenner.
Captured sitting on a simple stool with a yellow backdrop the image oozes sex appeal from the curly, seductive hair styling to her plump bosom pushed up by a satin corset.
There’s no hint of her history, just some rather enviable toned thighs, and it’s one of the exhibition’s most hard-hitting portrayals of female identity.
It’s void of politics, gender implications and social construct.
Caitlyn simply just is.
It’s her. Stunning, in a simple backdrop.

Meryl Streep’s image hints at stories and issues of identity facing women.
Her shot, captured in New York City in 1981, sees her pulling off a white painted mask which covers her face while US TV host Ellen de Generes’ scene leaves her looking somewhat uncomfortable too, clutching her bikini-clad chest in a sexual pose which might hint at the burden of expectations in society.
Meanwhile, the orchard surroundings of chef Alice Walter’s portrait offer a nod to her career choice, as does Adele’s 2015 Vogue shoot where she rests on a piano, her natural make-up revealing her beauty.
Portraits of Annie and her children and one of her mum Rachel - which he classes as ‘probably my favourite’ in the collection, give a touching insight into her family life.
Whether you’re a celeb-obsessed someone who admires this creative for her showbiz shots or a culture vulture keen to dig a little deeper into a project more than 10 years in the making, this is a must-see.
