Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2013
A bit late of the presses but…My portrait of Katie Walsh was awarded first prize at The National Portrait Gallery’s Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2013. It has been overwhelming to be given this recognition espescially after coming third in last year’s prize and it’s impossible to put into words quite how much it means. The image will be on show at the NPG, along with the other 60 images that were selected for exhibition, until the 9th of February 2014.

And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about.
