‘I love this picture of Louisa. Her face has got tremendous presence and she is extraordinarily dignified,’ says photographer Brian Warriner, who has been taking pictures of passers-by against the same wall in Clapham Junction since 1987. Unlike most photographers, Warriner prefers people with layers of clothes on. Louisa’s photo is one of ten runners-up for this year’s prestigious John Kobal Photographic Portrait Award. The winner is Jananne Al-Ani and all entries will be shown at the National Portrait Gallery for three months from 25 October.
