GoSee TIP : the National Portrait Gallery Double Feature: Private Eye by Lewis MORLEY and the TAYLOR WESSING PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT PRIZE 2011

The PRIVATE EYE: photographs by Lewis MORLEY exhibition presents photo series by a total of twelve photographers, from the founders and early contributors of the Private Eye Magazine, which celebrates its 50th birthday this year.

The first issue was published on 25th of October 1961, created by Christopher Booker, Richard Ingrams and William Rushton. Lewis Morley became somewhat of a semi-official photographer of the British satire magazine. Some of the motifs can be found here on GoSee and the rest is on display at the National Portrait Gallery, London.

Also in the National Portrait Gallery: The TAYLOR WESSING PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT PRIZE 2011. A wonderful opportunity to discover 60 works by some of the most exciting contemporary portrait photographers in the world.

Editorial, Advertising and Fine Arts – you can indulge in a wide variety of subjects, styles and approaches. The pictures range from formal portraits to public figures to spontaneous snapshots of friends and families.

This year's competition saw over 6,000 works submitted by 2,506 photographers. This included just as many talented amateurs as talented students and established professionals.

The selected works will be on show from the 10th of November to the 12th of February 2012 at the National Portrait Gallery, London. Including the five winners as well as the winner of the ELLE Commission.
