CONGRATULATIONS to both Alma Haser and Spencer Murphy (both of whom have photographed me) for being chosen for the final shortlist for the Taylor Wessing Prize this year.

Alma is a brilliant young photographer whose work fully justifies her selection as a finalist. She is extremely hard working, is not afraid to try out new ideas and experiment with different cameras, film and concepts. She is also extremely charming and a joy to work with.

As for Spencer, well what can I say? He consistently produces stunning portraits of which his photograph of Mark Rylance must be one of his very best. He is also a very nice bloke.

Alma's photograph of me is here and Spencer's portrait is there.

I am so thrilled for both of them.
