Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2013

7 June – 20 July 2014

The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2013 is a unique opportunity to see sixty new portraits by some of the most exciting contemporary photographers from around the world.

Through editorial, advertising and fine art prints, the exhibition explores a range of themes, styles and approaches to the photographic portrait, from formal commissioned images of famous faces to more spontaneous and intimate moments capturing friends and family.

This year the competition attracted 5,410 submissions by 2,435 photographers ranging from gifted amateurs and talented students to established professionals. The selected works in the exhibition, many of which are on display for the first time, include the four prize winners and the winner of the John Kobal New Work Award.

Please note this exhibition contains nudity.
