Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize announces changes for 2015

 

Previously unseen prints by the award-winning South African photographer, Pieter Hugo, will go on show in the inaugural In Focus display within the National Portrait Gallery’s major global photography exhibition, the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2015.

In Focus will become an annual showcase for new work by an internationally-renowned photographer, which will be exhibited alongside the photographs selected anonymously from the competition entries. As the first ever In Focus artist, Hugo was chosen by the Gallery for his uncompromising, insightful and occasionally provocative approach to portraiture.

For the first time, entrants to the competition are being encouraged to submit works as a series – either a group of individual portraits based on a particular theme, or two or more photographs that form a single portrait when shown together – in addition to stand-alone portraits. One series of photographs submitted to the competition may be chosen by the judges to be exhibited in its entirety.

To host a Private View of this exciting contemporary exhibition and display contact venuehire@npg.org.uk for further information and available dates.
