Absolutely delighted to be one of the winners of Portrait of Britain 2020!
My photo of Emma Kirk Odunubi was chosen, a photo from my Tough Women in Sport and Adventure portrait series, which I release for International Women's Day in 2020, which was exhibited in Canary Wharf. You can see all of the images here - https://www.nylasammons.com/toughwomen
If you meet Emma, you will find her to be warm, friendly, with a chilled outlook on life, but she is strong, persistent and fierce! Emma started taking on sporting challenges for charities after multiple family members died from cancer. Across four years she has completed an indoor Iron Man, four marathons, ten half marathons and perhaps most notably, 24 hours of burpees.
The photo has been displayed on JC Decaux screens across the UK in the months of September and October. The photo has been spotted about on bus stops, in train stations and shopping malls, my favourite place to see the photo was Kings Cross St. Pancras.
You will find the photo published in the Portrait of Britain book Vol. 3, which was published earlier this month by Hoxton Mini Press.
