Celebrating 20 years of Membership

The Gallery celebrates twenty years of its Membership scheme this year. Launched in 1998 Membership support has been vital to the Gallery and Members have grown to be some of our greatest advocates. With their help, we have been able to bring to life the most extensive collection of portraits in the world for all of our visitors to explore and enjoy. As the Gallery enters an exciting period of transformation through the Inspiring People project, we want our Members to be part of the conversation and share their experience of being a supporter. Whether you have been a Member for twenty years or you have just joined, you enjoy a closer relationship with the Gallery, helping it to thrive and inspire its visitors.

The Photographer

Tereza Červeňová studied Photography at Middlesex University and is currently undertaking her MA at the Royal College of Art in London, graduating in 2018. Her work has been exhibited and published both in the UK and internationally, including in the National Portrait Gallery, Somerset House, the Royal Festival Hall and the Museum of London, as well as BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Newcastle upon Tyne.

Tereza has been nominated for a Magnum Graduate Award and has won a number of early career awards including Daniel Blau Young Photographers’ Award and the D&AD Yellow Pencil for Photography in 2014. In 2015 she won the John Kobal New Work Award as part of the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize competition. Last year Tereza was selected for the prestigious Bloomberg New Contemporaries scheme.

Tereza’s editorial clients include The New Yorker, FT Weekend, Telegraph Magazine, PORT Magazine and she has collaborated with companies such as Channel4, The White Company and Islington Arts Factory. Her work is included in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery.
