Semi-finalist, 2019 HeadOn Portrait Award.
At the age of 19 I dropped out of the Certificate Photography Course I was doing because one of my teachers wrote this on the back of a photograph I submitted for an assignment: “Work like this is a disgrace - future submissions of this standard will not be accepted.” The photograph I had submitted was a self-portrait. So, 40 years later, I am very happy to have my self-portrait selected as a Semi-finalist in the 2019 HeadOn Portrait award.
Congratulations to all the semi-finalists, finalists and winners. All selected Portrait images can be viewed at the HeadOn Photo Festival hub, Paddington Town Hall, from 4-19 May.
