Portrait Salon

One of my images has been selected for 'Portrait Salon', a modern day 'salon des refuses'.

It is a showcase of 75 unselected entries from the National Portrait Gallery Photographic Prize 2011 (Taylor Wessing).

Personally I am really excited to see the other entries and I think it gives an interesting perspective and insight into the judging of the Taylor Wessing prize, an award which causes much debate every year.

The images will be shown as a projection at The Roxy Bar and Screen in Borough, London tonight and all are welcome! Short notice I know but it's been busy busy busy lately!!

Below is the invite and a quote from Miranda Gavin on the selection process....
“Looking through the rejected entries has been an eye opener - it was a rare chance to see some of the images that are discarded, to ponder the question of portraiture in the 21st century, and to discover some top-notch portraits to boot. The National Portrait Gallery Photographic Portrait Prize 2011 is a prestigious international prize, however, there is a lack of feedback given to entrants and it was surprising to find that there is some confusion as to what constitutes a portrait – many images simply didn’t fit the criteria. Portrait Salon is a new venture and should be viewed as a positive addition to the photo competition arena as all entrants are being given another chance to get their work seen on screen and in print at no extra cost.”
