If you are lucky enough to be in the vicinity of LONDON…. Don’t miss photo-london. Dates are May 31 – June 3rd; this is the first year the fair has been managed by the same group that organizes Paris Photo, bringing a more contemporary emphasis to the event.
From the event website:
A new management: on November 2006, photo-london was taken over by Reed Exhibitions, owner and organiser of Paris Photo, now the most important photography fair in the world. photo-london is held in the spring, and Paris Photo in the autumn. The Paris Photo team will be managing photo-london with Daniel Newburg, photo-london’s founder, as creative director.
A new concept: photo-london will now focus exclusively on contemporary photography since 1970. It aims to show the diversity of subjects, concepts, styles and techniques explored by photo-based artists from documentary work to conceptual art photography, as well as image combined with media such as audio, video, and installation. photo-london will provide a unique platform to highlight the latest international trends and expressions available in the medium of photography.
A new venue: the fourth photo-london will take place in a new and exceptional venue, Old Billingsgate, a magnificent 19th-century market building designed by Sir Horace Jones and entirely renovated in 1988 by acclaimed architect Richard Rogers. At the foot of the City, next to the Tower of London and facing the Thames, Old Billingsgate is within easy access of Waterloo Station.”
And, in the planning ahead department, the eleventh annual Paris Photo will be held November 15-18 this year, at the Carroussel du Lourve once again.
