Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize

17 Dec

Yesterday I went to the annual photographic portrait exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery.  I have been for the last few years and am never disappointed.

I love how portraiture captures moments and people and how the composition of a photo can give you real insight into a person’s life.  I must admit I thought the winning prizes weren’t the best pictures but I don’t suppose the label next to a picture saying “first prize” really makes a difference to the overall impact of the exhibition.

It is open until 12 February and I would definitely recommend you go.

This was one of my favourite photos from the show by Claudia Burlotti.
