An acclaimed photograher Madeleine Waller was shortlisted for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2010; her work Wet and Dry, Laura is one of 60 portraits chosen from over 6,000 entries. Madeleine’s Portraits of Poets were selected for the National Portrait Gallery’s Photographic Portrait Exhibition in 2006 and more recently as part of its Faces of Poetry special display in 2009; her exhibition at the London Fields Lido has also attracted much critical praise. For her residency at Swedenborg House, Madeleine has taken photographic portraits of members and associates of the Society. These portraits were be on display as part of her residency exhibition in October 2011 and are printed in a limited edition book Madeleine Waller: Portraits (Swedenborg Society 2011).
