I’m so very excited to announce that my portrait ‘Sora in Black’ is shortlisted for the Dutch Photographic Portrait Prize 2016! Out of 500 submissions, the jury chose a shortlist of five portraits made by: Blommers/Schumm, Robin de Puy, Frank Ruiter, Cigdem Yüksel and Jitske Schols (\o/). The winner will be announced on December 19th. The Dutch Photographic Portrait Prize was established in 2010. The prize is awarded to a photographer with a consistent oeuvre who according to the jury has made the best portrait in a given year. Previous winners include Sander Troelstra, Annaleen Louwes, Robin de Puy and Stephan Vanfleteren.
