by Astrid Schulz , under

Another exhibition opportunity arises for Daphne Davis (pictured): her image has been selected by artist Julie Cockburn for the annual Portrait Salon event in 2017. Now in it's seventh year, this exhibition will showcase portraits from photographers that submitted to and were rejected by the Taylor Wessing Photographic Price this year. The images will be displayed outdoors, but we will have the chance to celebrate in the function room.

The event takes place on Thursday, 16th November 2017 from 6pm until late
Venue: The Pub in the Park, 19 Martello Street, London Fields, London E8 3PE

About the image: 96 year old Daphne Davis was the first person I photographed for the series 'Memories', inspired by a quote from the movie 'The Straight Story' by David Lynch: "The worst thing about being old is remembering what it was being young". Daphne remarks that she hasn't had a professional portrait taken before in her lifetime, except for her wedding photograph over 60 years ago.
