Portrait Salon 2016 Multi-location London exhibition

09 November 2016
Metro is excited to be sponsoring Portrait Salon 2016, a form of Salon des Refuges that showcases the best of the rejected images from the prestigious annual National Portrait Gallery Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize (NPGTWPP)  Metro’s Director, Steve Macleod assisted Portrait Salon founders, James O Jenkins and Carole Evans in making the selection of images for the exhibition which represents the breadth of contemporary photographic portraiture that was entered and rejected by the NPG.

A small exhibition featuring a selection of portraits will be taking place in Metro’s FoH Gallery along with other Clerkenwell based businesses and shops as the organisers seek to show the work of photographers to as many new audiences as possible.

A map of the participating locations will be included in a publication which accompanies the exhibition launching at the J&A Café on 17th November along with a slideshow of every portrait entered to Portrait Salon 2016 on show in our FOH Gallery.

Additionally this year a Portrait Salon Symposium is taking place.  Providing visitors with a variety of opportunities to network:

Drop-in Portfolio Review: Emma Taylor from Creative Advice Network, Kate Myers and Helena Bullivant from HERO Productions, Carole Evans founder of Portrait Salon and Hat Margolies Director of Lucid Representation.

Panel Discussion
