[box type=”info” style=”rounded”]What: Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2012
Where: National Portrait Gallery, London
When: Till February 17 2013[/box]
I had the good fortune to see this exhibition as part of a private function at the gallery, so it was less of an ordeal getting round the pictures than it can be at London’s big galleries.
Viewing the Taylor Wessing prize winners and exhibitors is a bit like reading the British Journal of Photography. You get the feeling there is a very small club running these things and that they have decided on a particular visual style which comes through year after year in the winners and the pictures they choose to exhibit as part of the show.
