Announcement | Head On Photo Awards Semi Finalist

It’s official! This portrait of 7 year old Prue is a semi-finalist image for the 2019 Head On Photo Awards.

We’re waiting with bated breath as to the winners (announced this weekend!) but in the meantime we look forward to seeing the semi-finalists slideshow & exhibition which will run 10-6 daily (4-19 May) at the Festival Hub, Paddington Town Hall. Definitely worth visiting!

‘Prue’| Photographed by Matthew Duchesne

Behind the photo…

This photograph was captured in collaboration with Milk and Honey Photography during our Tween Project where we photographed her siblings too.

Prue’s mother warned that after she had a fall Prue recently she’d had stitches in her cheek and that it was “…still very much healing I’m afraid.  She’s being a trooper about it though.” And she was – no mention at all! Instead, Prue was clearly interested in the process of being photographed – perhaps made easier having had to put up with so much medical attention of late – and perhaps that explains her quiet “doctor’s face”.
