After not making it into the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize I took a closer look at the more successful applicants. Each piece has a strong story and social commentary behind it, moreso than my own lighter hearted efforts. Here I share with you my favourites.
The Twins by Dorothee Deiss - 2nd Place
I love the colour palette of this open portrait based on time tested relationships. Their pose is a refreshing change from your average family portrait.
Phoebe and the Rat by Laura Stevens
This photographer was focusing on the relations between man and pets, the lighting gives it a beautiful timeless feel.
