Photo London brings together 80 of the world’s leading photography galleries in a major international photography Fair, combined with an innovative public programme supported by the LUMA Foundation.


Photo London is produced by Candlestar, an internationally renowned cultural consultancy with an outstanding reputation within the field of photography and the arts.


Public Programme


Photo London is more than an art fair. The exciting public programme supported by the LUMA Foundation this year presented three large-scale exhibitions and two site-specific installations, all specially commissioned for Photo London. These include Beneath the Surface, showing hidden treasures from the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Photographs Collection, which will run until 24th August 2015, as well as the first UK exhibition of Kaveh Golestan’s Prostitute series and the epic Genesis in Platinum, displaying previously unseen platinum prints by Sebastião Salgado. Somerset House provided a dramatic backdrop for new installations The Teaser by Rut Blees Luxembourg and Diorama Map London by Sohei Nishino.


2015’s talks and lectures programme at Photo London featured some two dozen luminaries from the field, including Don McCullin, Sebastião Salgado, Susan Derges, William A. Ewing, Mitch Epstein, Simon Schama, Rankin and Stephen Shore.
