As well as a Fair involving over 100 of the world’s leading galleries, Photo London Digital incorporates a programme of online talks and workshops.

The Digital Programme builds on the Fair’s acclaimed public programme on the success of Photo London’s Academy which launched its unique blend of talks, artist engagements and publishing as a free of charge resource in April. The support and collaboration of our partners the FT Weekend and Nikon have been pivotal to the development of the programme, which offers online panel discussions (free, registration required), hands-on, professional photography workshops across different fields led by Nikon School (free, registration required, 50 ppl max), and live conversations with artists, curators, gallerists and photography professional on the Photo London Instagram channel (@photolondonfair; free, no registration required).
