Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize Exhibition


Featuring portrait photography by contemporary photographers, the Taylor Wessing makes its annual visit to the National Portrait Gallery. As in previous years, I found many of the portraits to lack a certain something. Whether that's because these days a lot of photography (much of mine included) seems to aim to grab the attention or simply because the photographers chose subjects and/or settings that fail to inspire.

That's not to say that the exhibition isn't to be enjoyed - I spent more than half an hour looking at the few dozen photos on display, and these days £2 isn't a great deal to pay for half an hour's enjoyment.

The Taylor Wessing exhibition runs to 17 February 2013. While you're there, why not have a look at the other photographic exhibitions currently showing, including Mario Testino's _Royal Portraits_.
