“Inflate” at the National Portrait Gallery

Posted in wrought by juliobesq on November 7, 2011

My portrait “Inflate” from the Skintones series goes on show this Thursday at the National Portrait Gallery. Its been selected for inclusion in the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2011 and will be on display till 12 February 2012, after that it tours nationwide.

Go along and see it, not only is it much bigger in real life than on your computer screen (and seeing things for real is nice) but there will be loads of other great portraits to view as well. And the restaurant is good.

The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2011 offers a unique opportunity to see sixty works by some of the most exciting contemporary portrait photographers from around the world.

Through editorial, advertising and fine art images, the entrants have explored a range of themes, styles and approaches to the contemporary photographic portrait, from formal commissioned portraits of public figures to more spontaneous and intimate moments capturing friends and family.

This year the competition attracted over 6,000 submissions from 2,506 photographers ranging from gifted amateurs and talented young students to established professionals. The selected works for the exhibition, many of which are on display for the first time, include the five prize-winners and the winner of the ELLE commission.
