As in the lasts years I recently went to the National Portrait Gallery in London to look at the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2014 entries and winners.
The overall impression was very good again but, for me, there were no real highlights this year.
Some excellently crafted photos, some very touching stories and striking poses for sure.
But on the other hand too many photos of sujets that are simply over-used and hackneyed (e.g. the proud girl/boy/family from the ghetto/township/village, colourful Irish traveller families and twins - they really included too many twin portraits this time)
Nevertheless worth having a look - not just for art lovers and/or photography geeks.
