LONDONíS NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY TO SHOWCASE MY WORK
My 'Wedding Band' portrait has been selected for a 3-month long exhibition of photographic portraits by London's oldest and most prestigious National Portrait Gallery.
The picture will be on display with 59 other images from 8 November 2006 to 18 February 2007. These 60 portraits were short listed from nearly 5000 portraits submitted by over 2000 photographers from across the globe.
I had entered the image for the Photographic Portait Prize. Unfortunately my image is not among the Top Four that have been short listed for the prize. But I am told, not many artists have had the privilege of having their work exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery. So I am quite happy with the outcome.
The National Portrait Gallery (NPG) is a landmark in London. Founded in 1856, this art gallery houses almost 10,000 portraits & 25,000 archived images of queens, kings, statesmen, poets, painters and other celebrities. The sole surviving portrait of Shakespeare is the star possession of NPG.
