Royal Bank of Canada announced as the Principal Partner
Today we are thrilled to announce Royal Bank of Canada as the Principal Partner for the eighth edition of Photo London, which opens 11 to 14 May 2023 (Preview Day 10 May) at Somerset House.
Photo London Co-Founders Michael Benson and Fariba Farshad add: “We are thrilled to welcome Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) as our Principal Partner. The opportunity to work with a sponsor with such a highly esteemed history of art fair engagement in the UK takes Photo London to a completely new level, further developing Photo London’s extensive international collector outreach.”
Speaking about this exciting new partnership Prue Thompson, Head of Marketing and Client Engagement at RBC Wealth Management International, says: “RBC’s long-standing commitment to the arts reflects the critical role that they play in enriching our lives, and is central to our purpose of helping communities prosper. Through RBC’s cultural partnerships and our own corporate art collection, of which photo-based practices play an active role, we are privileged to be able to support artists and organisations that are shaping our societies and culture. We are proud to partner with Photo London in 2023, one of the most prominent gatherings of collectors, exhibitors and curators in the photographic world, supporting this unique platform to encourage new talent and creative excellence.”
Photo London’s recently appointed Director, Kamiar Maleki says: “There’s a wonderful synergy between RBC’s long-standing commitment to collecting works of art and support for artists and Photo London’s own work on developing the collector community and nurturing of new talent. It’s an exciting time for photography [… and] RBC’s partnership is the perfect platform to be able to explore these new developments, and I look forward to building an important partnership with the team from RBC.”
With this year’s Photo London going from strength to strength, the 2023 edition of the capital’s leading photography fair is sure to be one of the best yet.
