The judges have selected 60 portraits for the exhibition from 5,410 submissions entered by 2,435 photographers, an increase of 85 entries on last year. The exhibition will run from Nov. 14, 2013 – Feb. 9, 2014 at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
MFA in Photography Program
The International Low-residency MFA in Photography at the Hartford Art School is an innovative program designed and directed by Robert Lyons. The program targets both mature individuals with established experience in the field as well as recent graduates who wish to further their own practice and acquire an MFA degree in order to facilitate their professional credentials as artists and educators. It differentiates itself from existing programs in that it is international in its student body make up as well as in its residency locations; it is also the only low-residency MFA program dedicated specifically to photographic studies.
