This year I decided to just submit the one image of Soul to the Taylor Wessing. It was at a time where I only had one from the current series that had been properly printed and felt complete. I felt like I would save a larger selection to be submitted next year. Sadly I was not selected for the second round of judging so I decided to submit to the Portrait Salon award for those refused entry to the Taylor Wessing (and now Portrait of Britain).
The image of Soul was selected, and as such published as part of a pack of cards for the award. It was also projected at their opening event (please see mine and Izzy’s cards above). Something about this event felt a little lacklustre, potentially there wasn’t much funding this year, but it was still a good way to get work seen by more people and have a social.
