Interviews by Richard McClure

The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize celebrates the vitality and excellence in portrait photography today. This prize is one of the most important platforms for contemporary portrait photographers internationally, and sixty stunning reproductions of the selected works provide an excellent overview of current photographic styles, trends and techniques.

DESCRIPTION

This book provides a unique opportunity to see an inspiring range of portraits from contemporary photographers selected from over 5,000 submissions. The works included are not only about the subjects – people who appear intriguing, defiant or relaxed – but also reveal the outstanding skills of the photographers, whose intelligence and diligence enables them to capture a moment in time, and to convey something of the spirit of those photographed.

Fully illustrated in colour throughout, the book features all the selected entries from this year’s competition, as well as comments and insights from the judges. The 2012 judging panel comprises Sandy Nairne, Director, and Terence Pepper, Curator of Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery, London plus Lauren Heinz, Director, Foto8; Sean O’Hagan, writer on Photography for the Observer and the Guardian; Emma Hardy, photographer, and Glyn Morgan, Partner, Taylor Wessing LLP. The catalogue includes a short essay by writer Sean O’Hagan, and interviews with the prizewinners by Richard McClure give further insight into the photographers behind the portraits.
