I accept my ignorance. I didn’t know about the photographer Spencer Murphy until I saw his portrait of Katie Walsh on the Guardian. The portrait makes you stop, stare and think about it for hours together. It keeps coming back to you. No wonder it is short-listed for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize this year. My real favourite though is his portrait of the German artist, Georg Baselitz, the man who creates wonderful upside down art. The portrait speaks for itself so no talking required, really. Enjoy.
