2014 Contemporary Lens Media graduate Adam Deakin is a creative fashion and portrait photographer. His work has been selected for the 4th Portrait Salon exhibition which kicked off at the Four Corners in London. The print exhibition will be shown across the UK into the new year (dates and venues are below).
Portrait Salon 2014 said: “For the first time, we will be exhibiting prints which have been submitted to and rejected by the Taylor Wessing National Portrait Gallery Photographic Portrait Prize, in an exhibition which will tour the UK. The Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize is one of the most prestigious photography prizes in the world, attracting entrants from professionals and amateurs alike. This year (2014) 4,193 images were submitted by 1,793 photographers, with 60 chosen to be in the exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. We seek to show the best of the rest.”
Adam’s selected image, pictured left, was chosen as one of 70 portraits out of 1,184 images. The Portrait Salon 2014 selection was made by Christiane Monarchi (Photomonitor), photographer Martin Usbourne (Hoxton Mini Press) and Emma Taylor (Creative Advice Network).
