My final self portrait entered into the Taylor Wessing Prize

Taylor Wessing Prize

Long time no see! 
Time has escaped me recently but today seemed a great day to write again! Although no passion will ever exceed that of my acting, the whole art world excites me and I try and dabble in all sorts - My writing, my filmmaking, my photography. 
Over the past couple years, I lost touch with my photography, but slowly this year I have reignited my love for the art. And what an excellent opportunity to put myself to the test than to enter the Taylor Wessing Prize with the National Portrait Gallery. 
My head was immediately exploding with ideas, many of which I explored, but then I ended up on a self portrait, which is the start of my exploration into a whole series of photographs. (So sorry, I wont be going too much into the reasons and explanations for this particular picture, but stay tuned!)
So today, I was emailed with the result of the competition and shortlists. Sadly, I did not make the top 60 photographs, but I did make the top 300, which out of 5,410 is a pretty thrilling result :) But now I have the result, I can share the image and see what you guys think :) Feedback, as usual, is very very welcome!! 
Let me know what you think :) and watch this space for more photos :)
