Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2012

Expoziţia Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2012, găzduită de National Portrait Gallery până în 17 februarie 2013, prezintă şaizeci de portrete alese dintre cele peste 5000 de aplicaţii trimise pentru concurs, inclusiv cele cinci portrete câştigătoare ale Premiului Taylor Wessing. Anul acesta, marele premiu (12000 de £) i-a revenit lui Jordi Ruiz Cirera pentru portretul unei femei din Bolivia, care aparţine comunităţii religioase menonite.

Sandy Nairne, Director of the National Portrait Gallery: My congratulations go to all of this year’s photographers. Jordi Ruiz Cirera’s portrait is a superbly crafted study of an unexpected but fascinating subject.

Tim Eyles, UK Managing Partner at international law firm Taylor Wessing: Many of the portraits selected this year have an enigmatic quality that will leave the viewer wanting to find out more. Collectively, they reflect a cultural and social variety that will doubtless come together as another hugely stimulating exhibition. Our congratulations go to all the shortlisted photographers and our thanks, as ever, to the National Portrait Gallery.
