"The BP Portrait Award", now in its twenty-seventh year, is a popular fixture on the summer calendar, and is the leading showcase for young artists specialising in portraiture. The competition is open to artists from around the world and last year received a record-number of over 1000 entrants, all competing for the main prize of GBP 25,000. As well as featuring all the entries from this year's competition, this arresting book includes a fascinating essay by novelist and biographer, Margaret Forster and an illustrated article by Joel Ely, the travel-award winner 2005. Ely has made portraits of members of a Basque male gastronomic society known as the Txoko, which meets weekly to consume traditional Basque dishes, drink, talk and sometimes sing. He explores how cooking is a means of communication and a way of defining cultural identity and authenticity. It includes a Fine Art exhibition catalogue and a contemporary portraiture.
