Honor Roll, 2: Pat Martin Wins the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize

By David Schonauer   Friday November 8, 2019

Los Angeles-based photographer Pat Martin has won this year’s Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize for two photographs from his series about his late mother, “Goldie (Mother).”  

Martin used portraiture to reconnect with his mother, who struggled with addiction throughout her life. “For most of my life, I misunderstood my mother and witnessed how the world misunderstood her,” he tells the British Journal of Photography. Martin wins £15,000, and his images will be on display at London’s National Portrait Gallery through February 16, 2020.
