“The paper bag was a favourite with all the judges”, confirms Ishbel Myerscough, “It had a lonely solitude, something I think we all felt a softness for.”

‘It makes something spellbinding and beautiful from distinctly unpromising subject matter – a paper bag sitting on a wonky table in a bare nondescript room. Yet somehow the quality of the light, the limited palette and the delicacy of the handling bring melancholy and poignancy to the scene.’
Gil Saunders, Senior Curator at the V&A Museum
