Portrait Salon 2017

We’d like to say a big thanks to everyone who attended our opening night at Pub on the Park in London Fields on November 16th. The exhibition is now at Ravensbourne (Greenwich Peninsula, 6 Penrose Way, London, SE10 0EW) until December 7th.

A big thanks also to Julie Cockburn who made this year’s selection and also chose James Perolls’ portrait (below) to be the cover of this year’s poster. The full 2017 selection will be on the website shortly and we hope to announce new venues and dates for the exhibition.

Thanks again everyone.

‘Alexander Norton’ by James Perolls.

‘Alexander hid his passion to cross-dress until July 2016 when he finally had the courage to tell his friends and family. This photograph documents the first time he wore womens clothing outdoors. We both decided to make this photograph to help boost Alexander’s self-confidence and also to push the belief that men should reveal feminine elements of their personality without fear or compromise regarding their perception within society’.
