Portrait Salon 2016


We are thrilled to announce that we are once again sponsoring Portrait Salon 2016, a form of Salon des Refusés set up in 2011 by photographers James O Jenkins and Carole Evans, to showcase the best of the rejected images from the prestigious annual NPG Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize.

This year Metro will be showing some of the images in our FOH Gallery as part of the multi-location exhibition which will take place across Clerkenwell, London from the 15th to 26th November.  Metro’s Director Steve Macleod, will curate the selection of portraits which will be exhibited in various locations, including retail and business outlets across the district.

Portrait Salon 2016 is open for submissions until 20th September.  Successful entrants will be notified of the selection by 1st October.

There will be a publication and trail map of all the selected work to accompany the exhibition.

Watch this space for further updates…
