Taylor Wessing Photography Prize

Recommended Posts

Any follow the Taylor Wessing prize each year or visit the exhibition? It's the most prestigious portrait photography prize out there but every year the top images mix brilliant with the banal.

This years winners have just been announced and the first prize is a wonderful piece of work full of power but the others in the top four...

The gormless prozzies have a sort of Tod Browning Freaks quality but it's a nothingy kind of photograph. The obese chick is merely a nice portrait showcasing how wonderful 6x6 medium format film looks. The Elle Commission is just a bog standard 'art photography' portrait that fills the pages of art photography magazines every month.

But what is up with 'My British wife'? It's just a dull snapshot of an unwashed trustarfarian-type with hairy armpits and the biggest 'bearded clam' ever.

You'll need to google the bearded clam guy on Google images to see the 'award-winning' image uncropped.
