I entered the Portrait of Britain award run by the British Journal of Photography.

They aim to create a groundbreaking nationwide public exhibition that will show the face of modern Britain and have selected 100 winning portraits to be showcased on JCDecaux digital screens nationwide during September 2016.

And two of these photographs will be mine!

I really like the idea and I can't wait to see how it will look. Here are my two winning portraits, both from my story "The Last Of The Fish Porters"

Brett and Jeff, let's go and have a coffee below the two JCDecaux digital screens showing your portraits, shall we?

My Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Award entry

Posted in: Portrait Awards 2016 Taylor Wessing

After a long break from the annual Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Award, I entered again this year with these images below. It was an interesting exercise to settle on only a few portraits from last year and to declare - these are the ones I like the best right now.

Apart from that I also printed them at Photofusion with Richard, and that was a joy in itself.

The captions for the following photographs are:

1. Juarez, chief of the Munduruku tribe settled in Sawre Muybu, stands in the middle of the 4 meter wide demarcation line, him and his men have cut into the Amazonian forest to mark out their land. They are fighting against the creation of a hydroelectricity dam by the Brazilian Government that would flood much of their territory. From "Of Flying Rivers and Flooded Lands"

2.Woman from the Munduruku tribe washes dishes in the Tapajós river in Sawre Muybu, their ancestral "holy land". From "Of Flying Rivers and Flooded Lands" 

3. Munduruku mother is bathing with her new born baby in the Tapajós river, Sawre Muybu, Brazil. From "Of Flying Rivers and Flooded Lands"

4. Donna Maria Bibiana da Silva is with 107 year, the oldest woman in Pimental, a village that would be flooded completely if the plans for the Sao Luiz do Tapajós dam were to go ahead. From "Of Flying Rivers and Flooded Lands"

5.Portrait of Ciara and her 9 month old son, South London 2016.

Comission winnners and artists announced for Night Contact

At this new London Multimedia and Photography Festival, work by over 50 innovative artists including Augustin Rebetez, Stephen Gill, Mishka Henner, Clare Strand and Penelope Umbrico will be on display for one night only. 

Anna Stevens, Contact Editions and Night Contact festival Co-Founder says, “As the technology of cameras and other hardware and software advances, multimedia photographic pieces are emerging as works that blur the lines between these forms of creative expression. We have established Night Contact because at present there is no one event or space which encourages a high quality showcase of work of this nature, with photography at its core.”

The work in the festival is curated from a combination of invited artists and open submissions to create an engaging and inspiring programme.
