PORTRAIT SALON presents: An evening of projection at the Roxy Bar and Screen
This ‘Salon des Refusés’ of London’s portrait photography scene has caused a small tidal wave of discussion over the past couple of months. The idea is straightforward - those 5,973 unselected entries for this year’s National Portrait Gallery Photographic Prize 2011 got a second chance to have their work seen under the guise of the PORTRAIT SALON.
Judged by the minds behind the portrait salon (anonymous for the time being) and Miranda Gavin of HotShoe International, the competition received some 600 entries after it’s call for submissions and has had our photographic community buzzing with expectation. Whilst some asked whether it was only ever going to be a gallery of second bests, Theatre of Light believes quite the opposite. We’ve had our eye on the project since it began and are of the firm belief that is an exciting and encouraging endeavour that we hope will grow and grow. It is a wonderful thing to get a second chance at viewing a wider range of examples of the staggering talent that is out there and seeing what otherwise we may never have discovered.
Whilst we’ve had a sneak peak at some of the final selection of 75, we’ve only put up a small few here - we simply don’t want to ruin the surprise. Do the photographs the justice they deserve and head down to see them on the big screen at The Roxy Bar and Screen on the 30th November.
