Taylor Wessing Prize

Jordi Ruiz Cirera has won this year's £12,000 Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize with his photo of Margarita Teichroeb, a young woman who lives in a closed Bolivian Mennonite community that distrusts and even forbids photography. I thought it the most atmospheric of the uninspiring shortlisted entries (CLICK). He also won the Deutsche Bank Award this year. CLICK for a Telegraph slide show. The exhibition opens at the National Portrait Gallery in London on 8 November (CLICK). Admission costs £2.
