Join us for an In Conversation with photographer, director, and seven times Photographic Portrait Prize finalist Ingvar Kenne. Based in Sydney, we revisit his 2009 NPPP-winning portrait, take a look through some of the 25 of his portraits held in the NPG collection, and catch up on his recent projects. 2021 has seen Ingvar’s work among the finalists in both the Bowness and Olive Cotton prizes, as well as the festival debut of his feature film The Land, where he was the director and cinematographer.
