I loved this portrait of Maggi Hambling by Harry Cory Wright which I saw at the Taylor Wessing portrait prize this week at the National Portrait Gallery. It was one of my favourite entries of the last few years. There is a great story behind it too - Maggi wouldn't stop smoking during the shoot so the photographer ran with it and added a smoke machine at the end.
