Twenty four-year old London photographer Laura Pannack has scooped top prize in the portrait singles category at this year’s World Press Photo contest for her work Graham.
If success begets success then the latest incarnation of the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2009 at The National Portrait Gallery is no exception.
The Photographers’ Gallery has named Anna Fox, Zoe Leonard, Sophie Ristelhueber, and Donovan Wylie as the four shortlisted artists nominated for its annual Deutsche Börse Photography Prize.
“I want the experience of art to transport me, move me, make me feel what it describes,” remarks Nan Goldin.
London’s photography scene just got a whole lot richer thanks to the arrival of Diemar/Noble, a new commercial gallery situated in the heart of the West End.
“Sensuous, delicately crafted, beautiful” are not the typical adjectives one would normally affix to the kind of art featured in the Turner Prize.
