EXHIBITION: Portrait Salon

11 November 2019

Portrait Salon logo
2019 sees the ninth edition of Portrait Salon & this year's accepted rejected work from the National Portrait Gallery’s Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize. The Taylor Wessing Prize received 3,700 submissions from 1,611 photographers.
The photographer Peter Dench made this year’s Portrait Salon selection and the images will be shown at The Royal Photographic Society in Bristol from November 21st to 28th. The photographs will then be shown at PhotoNorth Festival in Harrogate from November 30th to December 2nd.
Portrait Salon exists to question the place of competitions within the photographic industry, and their role in determining current trends. By accepting submissions which have been rejected from the NPG Taylor Wessing Prize their intention is to show that there is top quality photography which doesn’t always get selected.  Portrait Salon aim to show the best of the rest.
