Shaun Ryder. 2023.

Selected as a prize winning image in the 2023 Taylor Wessing Photo Prize. 

The judges were intrigued by being presented with a characterful celebrity portrait where the face is not revealed, but the personality of the sitter is still conveyed.

Born-and-bred East Ender, Jake Green’s prize-winning portrait is of Shaun Ryder, former lead singer of ‘Madchester’s’ Happy Mondays. Collaboration is key to Green’s practice and the photographer explains that an honest and disarming conversation preceded the musician’s suggestion that Green capture him vaping – a surreal experience for the photographer. Ryder’s head disappeared behind a cloud of smoke in a moment of self-obliteration, allowing for a humorous and intriguing portrait of a world-famous pop star. During the sitting, Green found himself to have a rapport with Ryder, which is something, along with an imaginative element, he thinks is key to a successful portrait.
