National Portrait Gallery – Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize through February 12th

The exhibition

After you’re done seeing the best of wildlife photography at the National History Museum, head to the National Portrait Gallery to see the fantaastic Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2011 exhibit which contains 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.”
