Talking about the campaign, photographer Ray said: "Just like the 2020 campaign, it's once again in aid of mental health awareness, which seems just as appropriate now as it was in the middle of the pandemic.

"There is also a physical exhibition space right below the screens (cleverly called The Take A Moment gallery), which has over 200 of my favourite portraits from the collection. There is also an ambient soundscape that myself and Stephen Dewey have composed especially for the exhibition to make the experience a tad more immersive.

"So if you are in Piccadilly, please go check it out and you can even upload your own eyes closed selfie and be a part of the art for the exhibition finale."
