The Taylor Wessing National Portrait Gallery 2011 Prize – Press View

Life imitates art, more than art imitates life by Oscar Wilde

I’ve been pondering Oscar Wilde’s quote as the world seems to fold in on itself from all quarters and have been away from the blog for a wee while. But I haven’t forgotten any of you out there who come across or read the blog regularly. Life took over from cyberspace and I’ve had to focus offline in the physical world for some time with little or no time or energy to tend and curate the blog. One day it may all become clearer, but that’s for another time.

Thanks to photographer James O Jenkins who kindly attended the press view for me and took some pix for the blog, including one of overall winner Jooney Woodward who wins £12,000 for her photo of a 13-year old with her guinea pig in the judging area at the Royal Welsh Show.

A slideshow of photos from this year’s press view for the Taylor Wessing National Portrait Gallery 2011 Prize follows.
