The winners of the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2014 have been announced -
59 images including the winning work have been chosen from 4,193 submissions, to be exhibited at the National Portrait Gallery from 13 Nov 2014 until 22 Feb 2015.


We love that Second prize went to Jessica Fullford-Dobson, for Skate Girl - a portrait of a seven-year-old Afghan girl at a skate school in Kabul.

‘The series reveals that Afghan girls are like any others in the world," explains Fulford-Dobson. "What I loved about this girl, was how immaculately dressed and composed she was. The skate hall is a dusty, noisy place filled with laughter and yelps of excitement as the girls skateboard freely, up, down and around with their robes and scarves flying."

Love it! Congrats Jessica!
