Taylor Wessing Prize

The National Portrait Gallery in London has announced the shortlist for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize. This year there are five nominees instead of the usual four. My favourite is Jooney Woodward's photo of 13-year-old Harriet Power, a steward at the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show, taken in natural light; but Jasper Clark's portrait of artist Wen in her live-in studio strikes me as conveying most about the subject (above). The winner will be announced on 8 November. The exhibition of 60 best entries (out of 6,000 submitted) opens on 10 November. Click the title link to view all five photos.
