The Portrait Salon, formed in 2011 in response to the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize, is a clever way to show a curated slideshow of entries that didn’t quite make the cut for The National Portrait Gallery. For one night only, November 29 between 7pm – 11pm, the portraits will be projected simultaneously in four venues across the UK. This year’s selection was chosen by Karen Newman from Open Eye Gallery, Hat Margolies from Lucid Rep, and photographer Dan Burn-Forti to “represent contemporary photography today”.
