Celebrity snapper taking Turner prize portraits today

A celebrity photographer will be in Derry today capturing images of people of the city.

As part of a special campaign marking the city’s hosting of the Turner Prize, images of local people will be posted on buildings and banners across the city and beyond.

Culture Company 2013 wants as many people as possible to come to Foyleside Shopping Centre today between 10 am and 4am to have their portrait taken by Seamus Ryan.

Seamus - whose recent clients include Chanel and Billy Connolly - will capture people’s reactions to the work of the artists on the Turner Prize 2013 shortlist.

Each shoot will take between four and five minutes and images will be available on the Turner Prize website from next month.
