More than 20,000 visitors attend first edition of Photo London

Photo London 2015 has now sadly come to a close. We had 70 galleries from 20 countries participated in the first edition of the fair, along with 10 publishers and 3 special exhibitors. We saw some of the best photography from all over the world, with strong sales across a range of photography from vintage and rare prints to contemporary and new work by established and emerging talent.

Michael Benson, Director of Photo London said,

“The reaction to our first edition has been astonishing – far exceeding our own expectations and predictions. Indeed many of our exhibitors have told us that Photo London is the best art fair they have ever attended. Our aim was not to be the biggest, simply to be the best and with our first edition we have taken a huge stride in that direction.”

We also had a superbly successful public programme for the first Photo London. This includes 3 specially commissioned exhibitions, amongst which Beneath the Surface showing works from the V&A’s Photographs Collection will remain open until the end of August. Each day has been jam-packed with events from performances to sold-out talks – too many to mention individually. We are hugely grateful to all the speakers who have taken part and to the many collaborating institutions that have made Photo London so much more than an art fair.
