The annual Lauderdale House photography contest returns for the first time since Covid with winners and runners-up from Crouch End and Highgate.

The 33rd edition of the awards saw two winners and two finalists selected from 159 entries by press photographer Em Fitzgerald and Ham&High photographers Nigel Sutton and Polly Hancock.

Around 100 entries are on display at the Highgate Center for the Arts, including Crouch End-based Bob Strongman’s image of a bird balancing on a rod, and Highgate-based Neville Morgan’s image of a man posing at the Denver Art Museum.

Finalist: Pose, Denver Art Museum. Taken in September 2019 at the Denver Museum of Art, Colorado, this man was photographed by his partner on the right of the image and presented an opportunity to photograph him without him being aware of another photographer.

Other winners include Enfield’s Andrew Ridley with his evocative image of commuters at Oxford Circus, and runner-up Brian Groves from Bethnal Green with his picture of a chain.

“This event has always been a fun way for all kinds of people interested in photography to come together, see their work on the walls of our gallery, share their experiences and advice, and enjoy a wide range of techniques and topics,” the Lauderdale House manager said. Katherine Ives.
