This year's winners of one of the world's most respected photography competitions, the Taylor Wessing Photo Portrait Prize, have been announced, including the first prize – a portrait taken by director and photographer Alexandre Silberman, from Paris, France. 

The portrait is titled Diena and comes from Silberman's photo series NATURE (yes, its capitalised), where he explores the intersections between the human landscape and the natural world. The judges felt that the portrait "Encompassed a compelling blend of traditional and contemporary", noting that the "timeless" aesthetic mixed with hints of modernity such as the headphones. For becoming the grand prize winner Silberman earned £15,000 (around $18,200 / AU$28,500).
