Overview

We would like to invite you all to join Sandra Bruce, Director Exhibitions & Collections and Tara James, Exhibitions Project Coordinator at the National Portrait Gallery of Australia, in conversation with Magda Keaney, Senior Curator, Photographs and Denise Vogelsang, Head of Communications at the National Portrait Gallery, London.

Together, they will consider the power of the photograph and how the exhibitions Hold Still/Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize (NPG, London) and Living Memory: National Photographic Portrait Prize (NPG, Australia) reflect each nation’s identity and our shared human experiences at this unique point in history.
