NATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT PRIZE
Two photographs taken on the local streets of Perth by Brett Canet-Gibson, were shortlisted from over 3,000 entries for the National Portrait Gallery’s prestigious National Photographic Portrait Prize (NPPP): Mastura Koelmyer (which was awarded 2nd Prize "Highly Commended") and Trevor Jamieson (which was awarded
the 2017 People's Choice Prize).
"To reach the finals of the NPPP three years’ running, and this time with two portraits (which I’m told has never happened before in the history of the Prize), is a wonderful accolade. It's an honour to be at the National Portrait Gallery, and I'm thrilled that the public have responded in such a positive way to the work."
PERCIVAL PHOTOGRAPHIC PORTRAIT PRIZE
Brett Canet-Gibson was awarded the $10,000 Percival Photographic Portrait Prize for his stunning portrait The Life of Riley. Judge, Professor Anne Marsh from the Victorian College of the Arts at the University of Melbourne was impressed with the diverse array of styles and approaches to photographic portraiture taken by artists.
“The Life of Riley is a contemporary portrait encapsulating the strength, defiance and fragility of youth. Here a young male, soon to be adult, appears to search out the gaze of the viewer but it is uncertain whether he sees us. His eyes seem strangely vacant or preoccupied, the set of his mouth and the flare of his nostrils suggest a degree of hostility as he looks out from this frame and into a world. But the emotion is ambiguous: sadness, disdain, distress and distrust vie for attention,” Professor Marsh said.
Brett said his winning portrait highlighted an important social issue: bullying. “Throughout the last year leading up to his teenage years, Riley had been mercilessly bullied at school. He had been knocked out inside the classroom - kicked, punched and verbally abused in the schoolyard, and followed and harassed on his way home. After endless meetings with the school principal to no avail, Riley's parents decided to sell the family home and move away from the area. Taken in his backyard, this image was made on the evening prior to their departure for New Zealand.”
