I’m thrilled that in 2019 this photograph was shortlisted for the Portrait of Britain prize, among 200 other outstanding photographs.
Portrait of Britain is a nationwide photography completion and exhibition, run by British Journal of Photography – a contemporary photography magazine established way back in 1854. The Portrait of Britain award is now in its second year and celebrates the rich tapestry of people that make up Great Britain, by turning their stories into public art.⠀
Alongside with all other 200 shortlisted images, this photograph is now part of Portrait of Britain vol 2 book (if you collect photography books – make sure to get it now as it’s full of beautiful portraits and also is a limited print run). I
This image is also in the October issue of British Journal of Photography magazine among a handful of featured winners and shortlisted photographers.
