Portrait of Britain Winner

Delighted to be selected for the 2nd time for the British Journal of Photography’s Portrait of Britain. The competition and subsequent exhibition and book is now in the 6th year. I was also a winner in 2018 with Annie and her Sheep from The Shetland Project.

My winning image this year was Gina & Tina. These identical twins live in a small off-grid community near Swansea. They feel the need to be together in their self-sufficient universe, and describe their ramshackle house in the woods as ‘heartwarming and spiritual’. The portrait is from the Series Herath, Wales: The Landscape Project with Map6 Collective

The winning portraits, selected by a panel of industry-leading judges, are now part of the UK’s biggest annual photography exhibition which was a month-long digital screen display in partnership with JCDecaux.
