Girl on Kingsland Road

Buying the Guardian on a Saturday is sometimes as close as I get to all the major exhibitions I want to see in London. But this weekend I am making the effort to go to the National Portrait Gallery where my amazingly talented friend Ashley has her very own image in the annual Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize exhibition. Pretty amazing really. Her image, ‘Girl on Kingsland Road’ feels beautifully spontaneous yet at the same time manages to capture that sense of ‘mutual awareness’ between subject and photographer where an ‘understood’ pose is representative of a socially visual generation. Never without her camera, friends, myself included, are well accustomed to being snapped at on random outings and finding ourselves on her blog. Always beautifully executed though Ashley is like the Polaroid camera, she has that unique eye and talent to make everything just look beautiful! Cool Hunting recently interviewed her, but make sure you pop to the NPG Gallery before February 14th to see not only Ashley’s entry but the other entrants and winners of this year’s competition.
