Photo London es la feria que ha concedido a Londres un evento de gran carácter centrado en la fotografía en el ámbito internacional. Inaugurada en 2015, se ha establecido como una de las ferias de fotografía más relevantes a nivel mundial. Como capital que acoge parte de los museos más importantes del continente europeo, así como grandes y pequeñas galerías y casas de subastas, Londres se ha convertido en centro de convergencia para comisarios, coleccionistas, expositores y marchantes de todas partes del planeta. Las galerías que forman parte de cada edición de esta feria, se cuentan entre las más importantes del mundo.
Photo London was created to give London an international photography event befitting the city’s status as a global cultural capital. Now in its third edition, Photo London has established itself as a world-class photography fair and as a catalyst for London’s dynamic photography community. From the capital’s major museums,...to its auction houses, galleries large and small, right into the burgeoning creative communities in the East End and South London, Photo London harnesses the city’s outstanding creative talent and brings together the world’s leading photographers, curators, exhibitors, dealers and the public to celebrate photography, the medium of our time.
Along with the selection of the world’s leading galleries showing at the Fair, Photo London presents the Discovery section for the most exciting emerging galleries and artists; there is an original Public Programme bringing together special exhibitions, installations, a Talks Programme curated by William A. Ewing, renowned curator and writer, former Director of the Musée de l’Elysée, and former Director of Exhibitions at the International Center of Photography, New York. Each edition of the Fair also sees a number of Awards announced, headlined by the Photo London Master of Photography, Photo London Artproof Award and the Magnum Photos Graduate Photographers Award. Hosted awards include the Kraszna-Krausz Book Awards and the MACK First Book Award. Beyond the Fair, Photo London regularly hosts Pre-Fair Talks and related events engaging with the craft, market and knowledge of photography.
Photo London is a place to encounter the most innovative emerging artists, new work by established masters and rare vintage pieces, and as such is guided by a Curatorial Committee comprised of some the field’s most esteemed curators, critics and museum directors.
A high level Advisory Board advises on the development of Photo London. The members of the Board play a key role in encouraging the development of the various networks on which Photo London depends. The Advisory Board is committed to maintaining Photo London as a major event in the international art world calendar.
