Portrait Salon


The National Portrait Gallery has recently announced its judges for this year’s Taylor Wessing Award, so we thought we’d announce ours.

The point of Portrait Salon is not to show all the rejects, but to show the good images which don’t get a look in at the National Portrait Gallery. Last year, we selected the images with the help of Miranda Gavin, from Hotshoe magazine, but this year we have decided to take a step back from the selection process, and have invited members of the industry to do it for us. We are very pleased to announce our three selectors for Portrait Salon ‘12 are Karen Newman, curator at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, Hat, from photographic agency Lucid Rep, and photographer Dan Burn Forti.

We are excited to have them on board, and they seem to be excited to be working with us… Bring on Portrait Salon ‘12!
