Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2011 Summary

Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2011 by Michael Bracewell

This book provides a unique opportunity to see an inspiring range of portraits from contemporary photographers selected from over 6,000 submissions. The works included are not only about the subjects - people who appear intriguing, defiant or relaxed - but also reveal the outstanding skills of the photographers, whose intelligence and diligence enables them to capture a moment in time, and to convey something of the spirit of those photographed. Fully illustrated in colour throughout, the book features all the selected entries from this year's competition, as well as comments and insights from the judges. The 2011 judging panel comprises Sandy Nairne, Director and Terence Pepper, Curator of Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery, London plus Monica Allende, Picture Editor, The Sunday Times Magazine; Michael Bracewell, writer and novelist; Venetia Dearden, photographer and Clare Ferguson, Senior Consultant, Taylor Wessing LLP. The catalogue includes a short essay by writer and novelist Michael Bracewell, and interviews with the prizewinners by Richard McClure give further insight into the photographers behind the portraits.
