Wider Angle: Highlights from the Portrait Salon 2019

21 November 2019

From an entrepreneur known as the Black Farmer to Ant and Dec raising their legs, this “salon des refusés” showcases the striking images turned down for the Taylor Wessing portrait award.

This image is of a young and incredibly gifted pianist called Ibrahim Alam. He’s mainly self-taught and attends Bow school in London’s East End. When Kelvin met him at his school, he sat and played without sheet music, moving from piece to piece seamlessly. The music flowed from inside him.

This picture comes from a series Kelvin shot of young musicians, which accompanied a film called For the Love of Music. We hope the world is kind to Ibrahim and his obvious talent finds reward.
