This year’s Photo London — coming hot on the heels of September 2021’s sixth edition, the world’s
first international photography fair in almost two years — brings together exhibitors from across the
globe and presents a thrilling range of photography in all its forms, ranging from images from the
dawn of photography to new pieces that redefine of the medium. Fair Founders Michael Benson and
Fariba Farshad comment:
‘Photo London’s mission has always been to show the best of the past, present and future of
photography. This edition is no exception, presenting exhibitors and artists whose work not only
delights and surprises, but in many cases also challenges assumptions about what photography can
be. Invention is at the core of photography’s DNA and with it the ability to reach beyond its own
moment — whether it is the Countess de Castiglione sitting down to make a series of
ground-breaking self-portraits in 1856, the experimentations of photographers from the Kharkiv
School in Ukraine in the 1970s to develop a personal aesthetics in defiance of the codes of social
realism, or indeed the work of this year’s Master of Photography Nick Knight, whose photographic
practice encompasses sculpture and painting and for whom the purpose of photography is “to show
the world not just who we are, but who we want to be.”’

Castiglione. Hershkowitz (London) and Roland Belgrave (Brighton) continue to exhibit rare and
one-off pieces of nineteenth century travel, history and exploration. Curatorial’s (L.A) booth

from as early as Paris in the 1930s through the many chapters of her life and shows these alongside

At Suite 59 Gallery (Amsterdam) vintage prints on the theme of ‘The Artist and his studio’ are on
show, presenting images of intimate observations of world-renowned artists in their habitat including
Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon, Julian Schnabel, Jean Cocteau, Yan Pei Ming and David Hockney.
England & Co’s (London) presentation explores photography’s contribution to the radical art
produced by international avant-garde artists in the 1960s and 1970s, encompassing artists’ use of
photography as medium and method for documentation, experimentation, and visual statements
about politics and feminism with a particular focus on Anne Bean.


New developments in photography

The acclaimed Discovery section for emerging galleries offers an opportunity to check the pulse of
what’s going on at the frontiers of photography. Returning exhibitors include Euqinom (San
Francisco) featuring works by Christine Elfman, Ansley West Rivers and Rodrigo Valenzuela;

exhibitors LS10 from London, showing work by young Iranian photographers including Ebrahim
Noroozi, Jassem Ghazbanpour and Jalal Sepehr.


Discovery Curatorial Advisor Tim Clark comments: ‘Many of these tackle critically important subjects
and themes, including those related to diasporic experiences, the relationship between the body and
architectural space, the effects of climate change or representations of gender, in the process
providing many instances of beauty, provocation, comfort, revelation and, of course, sustained
exploration into the materiality of print and lens-based media.’


In keeping with its curatorial determination to present future directions in photography, this year’s Fair
features a special section entitled
Photography Breaking Boundaries that includes sculptural
works by Miriam Naeh represented by PLEASE QUEUE HERE (London), Paul Chapellier
represented by SEAGER Gallery (London), Adam Jeppesen represented by Black Box Projects

PHOTO LONDON’S 2022 PUBLIC PROGRAMME


Exhibitions

The Master of Photography exhibition this year is ‘Nick Knight: Future’, an exhibition of key
works across Knight’s career from the ’80s until today. Spanning fashion, portraiture, still life and
landscape, the works are realised as photography, film, installation and a vast new sculpture. As
Knight explains, photography is the jumping off point for a creative vision that encompasses all
media and combines art historical influences with the newest technologies: ‘being a photographer is
actually not about what you see, it’s about what you feel and that feeling can be transformed into any
art form,’ he says. ‘We are probably in the most exciting time for creativity ever.’

here for full information about ‘Nick Knight: Future’.


The second exhibition in this year’s Public Programme is a homage to the legendary photographer
Frank Horvat (1928 – 2020). Throughout a career that lasted seven decades, Horvat was constantly
experimenting and adapting to new technologies making work that transcended the prevailing

photographic orthodoxy and revolutionaised fashion photography. Curated by his daughter
Fiammetta Horvat, the exhibition focuses on Horvat’s fashion work for leading magazines and
images depicting Paris at night.

Curatorial committee in steering this final gallery selection:
‘Our curatorial committee under the chairmanship of Philippe Garner, has played an invaluable role
in helping us shape this year’s Fair. They have been determined to drive up quality and we thank
them for their tenacity in that regard. We are thrilled to be able to present such an outstanding group
of galleries and artists to the many museum groups and individual collectors who are returning to
London for the first time since May 2019. They will find much to admire. Here is photography in all its
blazing glory. At every turn this year’s Fair delivers a powerful reminder that Photo London remains
the key international destination for anyone who is intrigued by the ever unfolding story of
photography.’
