A picture of a Herefordshire cobbler has made the shortlist of the prestigous British Journal of Photography ‘Portrait of Britain’ award.
The image of cobbler Nick Turner was taken outside his shop by photographer Andy Compton.
Nick has cerebral palsy and has been a cobbler in Kington for 36 years.
The British Journal of Photography’s Portrait of Britain is the UK’s biggest annual photography competition and sees the shortlisted images published in a book by Bluecoat Press.
Then 100 of these portraits will be selected to be displayed in high streets, shopping centres and transport hubs across the country on JCDecaux digital screens.
The Portrait of Britain’s shortlisted images capture “the quirky and mundane, the here and now of the extraordinary everyday in which we live” said Mick Moore, chief executive of competition organisers the British Journal of Photography.
