Hoda Afshar wins National Photographic Portrait Prize 2015

– posted by Sally

Photographic Studies College

We are delighted to announce that on Friday at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra, our lovely staff member - Hoda Afshar was awarded (by none other than the fabulous Margaret Pomeranz and David Stratton) the National Photographic Portrait Prize 2015!

The National Photographic Portrait Prize is Australia’s top photography prize. It is selected from a national field of entries. This year there were over 2,500 entries.

Hoda’s winning image ‘Portrait of Ali’ is from a series called ‘The Smell of Narenj’ that Hoda made during a recent trip to her home country of Iran. The photographs in this series reflect her personal view on contemporary Iranian society — a country whose reality is often either misrepresented, or hidden behind a heavy curtain.

Dr Christopher Chapman (Senior Curator) said that the portrait was a unanimous choice for the judging panel. ‘The portrait is poignant for its intimation of this boy’s future – likely as a shepherd. The photographer has captured a powerful sense of mystery that adds to the compelling nature of the portrait – the boy, standing calmly within the rocky, misty setting.’

We are incredibly proud of Hoda. This is an outstanding achievement that situates her at the forefront of contemporary photography in Australia. I'm sure you will all join me in extending your warmest congratulations to her.

The exhibition opened last Friday night and will be on display until the 8th June before traveling to galleries all over Australia.

Regards,

Julie Moss
Managing Director
