London, July 2021 – Photo London presents its sixth edition at Somerset House from 9-12 September, with a preview on 8 September. Photo London Digital also returns, with a second edition running on artsy.net and photolondon.org from 9–28 September 2021, with a preview on Artsy on 8 September. The digital fair will supplement the physical event at Somerset House allowing participation to those who will be unable to travel despite the easing of the restrictions.
Michael Benson and Fariba Farshad, Founders of Photo London, comment: “Photo London will be the first physical photography fair anywhere in the world for at least 18 months. Without doubt, this edition of Photo London has been our most challenging yet. After three postponements and the constantly shifting situation regarding international travel we are thrilled that we will finally be able to go ahead with the Fair at Somerset House in September. We have never regarded the tsunami of difficulties we have faced as a reason not to present the strongest possible edition of the Fair and with that in mind we are delighted by the depth range and quality of our sixth edition. This is a significant illustration of resilience of Photo London which is, in turn, a testament to the fantastic support of our various partners and supporters but most of all to the ongoing support of our exhibitors and the artists they will present at the Fair. We have an amazing response from our audiences with ticket sales running at record levels and the second edition of Photo London Digital is also attracting a significant interest from those exhibitors who remain grounded for now.”
