Whilst the Globe celebrates Shakespeare's 450th birthday with a round the world tour of Hamlet and the RSC set fire to the bard's face as part of a "spectacular display", one photographer is observing the occasion from a slightly different perspective.

Shakespeare's Bitches by emerging photographer Victoria Baptiste, is a photography exhibition "exploring, in a fresh and innovative manner, the burdens, the trials and the tribulations of Shakespeare's leading ladies".

We've been given an exclusive sneak preview of some of photos from the exhibition. To see the full images, head over to Gallery On The Corner on Wednesday 30 April 2014.
