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.

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.”
