LONDON.- The 2009 Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize has been won by Paul Floyd Blake, 47, for his portrait of 13-year-old swimmer Rosie Bancroft, who hopes to compete in the 2012 Paralympic Games. The portrait of the teenager, who had her right foot removed when she was ten months old, was taken in a swimming pool changing room in her home town of Oxford. Blake says, 'Rosie was competing throughout the day and there was only a short window when I could take the picture. She had just swum a personal best in her event and I think that's why she has such a confident, self-assured look in the portrait.'
