In Focus

The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition includes In Focus, an annual showcase of new work by an internationally-renowned photographer.

We are delighted to announce that the In Focus artist for the 2017 Prize is the American photographer Todd Hido, who is known for juxtaposing mysterious and cinematic ruminations on the American landscape alongside portraits of women, which together speak of a fragmented and personal memory of the past. A selection of new work by Hido will go on display as part of the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2017 from 16 November.

Hido will be the third In Focus artist, selected by National Portrait Gallery curators, following Cristina de Middel in 2016 and Pieter Hugo in 2015.
