Wellcome Book Prize Award Ceremony
The Wellcome Trust, London
The Wellcome Book Prize awards ceremony event 2014.
Now in it's fifth year, the Wellcome Collection Book Prize brings together seemingly disparate worlds of medicine and literature, allowing entries of both fiction and non-fiction to win £30,000. At this celebratory event at the Wellcome Trust, Sir Andrew Motion presented the prize to the winning writer, Andrew Solomon, for his "monumental" book Far From the Tree.
A group of 250 prestigious guests entered the building brushing past a 'curious' library installation and were then immersed into a forest of 'trees of knowledge' in the main space. Carefully crafted leaf pages from the shortlisted books enhanced these trees and styled the event into a unique celebratory atmosphere.
