Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2018A mother holding her baby, a child from a remote village in the jungle in Sierra Leone, a series on the all-female teams of majorettes in South Africa and a double portrait of a pair of shoppers in London are the four photographs shortlisted for this year's Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize. Open to professionals, emerging artists and amateurs alike, the major international photography award - worth 15,000 pounds to the winner - goes on display at the National Portrait Gallery and is a highlight of the autumn arts calendar each year. The prize consistently attracts a high level of expertise yet the 'open to all' caveat means there's always an element of surprise. The In Focus display at this year's exhibition shows previously unseen prints from a new body of work by Japanese photographer Rinko Kawauchi.

 

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
