The photography collection will go on display at the Nicholls & Clarke Building in Shoreditch between 13-21 September. It features a range of shots from Harlem, New York, which were taken by the photographers within 24 hours in July and captures iconic sites and every day street scenes from the US neighbourhood.

The photography duo took the images using Nokia’s Lumia 1020 smartphone and a camera grip, and it was the first time Weber has used a digital camera.

Mark Newton, vice president of Nokia brand and marketing creative, said: "The Nichols & Clarke Building is the perfect urban space to exhibit the work of two of the world’s greatest photographers.

"Unlike any smartphone in the market today, the Nokia Lumia 1020 reinvents zoom, enabling people to discover more detail than the eye can see. But don’t take my word for it – come to the exhibition and see for yourselves."

Next Thursday (12 September), agency Touch Worldwide will host an event at the venue to launch the exhibition, inviting guests to enjoy the photography collection along with music, drinks and canapés. The company will also be overseing the overall production of the exhibition.

Consumers will also be asked to submit their own photos to capture city spirit and create an online image library as part of the product launch.
