NPG Award Shortlist
The shortlist for the National Portrait Gallery's Photographic Portrait Prize has been announced. Competing for the £12,000 award are Jonathan Torgovnik, Michelle Sank, David Stewart and Julieta Sans. The stark composition of Jonathan Torgovnik's photo of rape-victim Joseline Ingabire makes it look more like a painting than a photo. To me it seems the obvious winner, although Julieta Sans' photo of her friend Lucila must count as one of the most relaxed, informal portraits I've ever seen. Nice legs too.
