The Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize is the leading competition to celebrate and promote the very best in contemporary portrait photography from around the world.

The exhibitions presents a selection of images which explore both traditional and contemporary approaches to the photographic portrait whilst capturing a range of characters, moods and locations. Alongside informal images of friends and family, this year’s exhibition also features revealing portraits of famous faces, including actor Benedict Cumberbatch and the President of the United States Barack Obama with First Lady Michelle Obama.

New for 2015, previously unseen prints from a recent body of work by the award-winning South African photographer Pieter Hugo will be exhibited as part of the inaugural In Focus display.
