Curatorial Committee

Our aim is to make Photo London a key destination for everyone who is equally intrigued by the rich history of photography and fascinated by future directions of the form. The Fair 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.

This year’s Curatorial Committee includes:

Chair: Philippe Garner – Former Director at Christie’s and International Head of Photographs and 20th Century Decorative Arts and Design.

Martin Barnes – Senior Curator, Photographs at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Simone Klein – Former Global Director of Print Sales at Magnum Photos.

Shoair Mavlian – Director at Photoworks.

Sofia Vollmer de Maduro – Director of Education, Society of the Four Arts, Palm Beach, collector and Curator Emeritus of the Alberto Vollmer Foundation collection.

Discovery Curator: Tristan Lund – Art consultant and curator, collection curator of The Incite Project, a UK based collection of photojournalism and documentary photography. Previous Director of Michael Hoppen Contemporary, Tristan also represents a select group of emerging photographic artists.
A platform for young galleries, emerging artists and work that pushes the boundaries of the medium, our Discovery section features more galleries than ever before, in an expanded, dedicated space.
