Third year student Emilie Taylor has been selected to exhibit at this year’s Portrait Salon Exhibition at the Embassy Tea Gallery in London.
The Portrait Salon exhibition, now in its fifth year, aims to showcase images rejected from the Taylor Wessing Portrait prize. This year there will be over 300 works on show and the exhibition will also been shown in the Reminders Photography Stronghold gallery in Tokyo in the new year where it will be part of a project called ‘I / Land’.
Emilie entered this year’s Taylor Wessing, and although was not selected this time heard about the Portrait Salon and is excited about having the opportunity to exhibit alongside many other professional photographers.
Emilie’s image is of her Grandmother and is taken from a series entitled ‘Bootsie’, her Grandmother’s nickname for 90 years. The series documented the life of Bootsie after the death of her husband of 65 years.
The exhibition is on show between Wednesday 18 November – Sunday 22 November 11am – 6pm.
