Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2014

November 11, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This Darshana Photo Art picture by Gerry McCulloch made it into the final round of judging for the prestigious Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2014 - but alas was not selected for the exhibition.

 

The Taylor Wessing Prize is one of the most prestigious photographic portrait prizes in the world - coming this close to being selected is almost an achievement in itself.

 

Out of around 5,000 submissions, this picture entitled Tara Rokpa made it into the last 200, although I have no way of knowing how close it came to the final selection of 60 images. 

 

The photo is from a visit to Tara Children’s Project in Bodh Gaya, Bihar, North East India earlier this year during filming of the documentary Akong: A Remarkable Life. 

 

The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Exhibition opens at the National Portrait Gallery on Thursday 13th November and runs until 22nd February. Admission is £3.
