Spencer Murphy has won this year’s Taylor Wessing portrait prize.
My review of the show will be up tomorrow on Disphotic. For now I find it interesting that you have to go back to 2006 for a prize winner that isn’t of a girl or woman, and also to note that most of these photographs were taken by men. Perhaps something, perhaps nothing?
Photographs from top: Spencer Murphy, Jordi Ruiz Cirera, Jooney Woodward, David Chancellor, Paul Floyd Blake, Lottie Davis, Jonathan Torgovnik
Perhaps something, perhaps nothing. Either way, these are incredible.
Took a trip out to 5 Pointz with some friends a couple weeks ago. I had seen photos and heard stories, but nothing prepares you when you walk around the corner and see it for yourself. This is such a cool, iconic NYC art space, and it’s sad to think it might not be around much longer. Visit their website and find out what you can do to SAVE 5 POINTZ!
