LONDON.- Photo London announced that Charlie Tallott, who is represented by New Dimension, is the winner of the 2024 Photo London x Nikon Emerging Photographer Award.

The announcement was made on the evening of Wednesday 15 May during a special ceremony that took place in the Nikon Gallery, Somerset House during Photo London 2024.

Originally from Yorkshire, Tallott began taking photos in and around his grandparents house in Cross Gates, East Leeds. The influence of his family, upbringing, and hometown permeates his work, which centres around delving into the profound social and psychological impacts of deindustrialisation through photography.

At Least Until the World Stops Going Round is a series of work produced three years ago following a suicide attempt. During the three months that Tallott spent recovering in the care of an NHS crisis team he used photography as refuge, striving to create utopian realities through his images. The work acts as a euphoric counterbalance to his real life experience at the time. Bright snapshots act as a window into seeing the most high-saturated, blissful scenes whereas black and white imagery littered throughout the project act as subdued, lonely moments.

The project's title was influenced by aphorisms Tallott’s mum would tell him and is a statement of hope and solace, which acts as a reminder that our darkest moments are temporary.

Tallott explains: "When you experience a really low point, photography [can become] a vessel to move from it. Your eyes can go and just live somewhere else, a different world…. It’s remembering there’s good and bad. You have to go with the flow of each, enjoying both as much as you can. There’s almost a feeling of appreciation and understanding toward how you feel, knowing that it’s all just temporary. The world will keep turning, and the sun will turn up tomorrow.”

Julian Harvie, Nikon’s Marketing Director for Northern Europe, comments: “Now in our 5th year of partnership with both Photo London and the Emerging Photographer Award, we could not be more delighted by the strength of talent on display in this year’s shortlist and especially in Tallott’s winning portfolio. His series is a testament to photography’s ability to help him reframe his world and, in turn, allow us to reframe our own. This award serves to reinforce Nikon’s duty not just to create products, but to act as a platform for and investor in both artists and the art of photography.”

As the winner, Charlie is awarded a Nikon Z Series camera and a choice of two NIKKOR Z lenses, with specialist training from Nikon School to help take advantage of the capabilities that Nikon’s Z range has to offer.

Photo London Founders Michael Benson and Fariba Farshad say: “Congratulations to Charlie Tallott and New Dimension gallery. We have run our emerging photographer award since our first edition. The award has consistently proved itself to be an important launchpad for young photographers shining a spotlight on their practice at a crucial moment in their careers. In recent years we have been proud to partner with Nikon to amplify this important award and continue to support the photographic ecosystem in this way. This year we’re thrilled that, once again, the strength and variety of the shortlisted artists' works demonstrate the vibrancy of this most humane and innovative mediums.”
