artists & participants

press release

photo-london debuted in May 2004 as London's first international photography fair. Around fifty exhibitors from ten countries showed a stunning range of work from 19th century daguerreotypes to contemporary video. The fair featured a special exhibition of photographs by Johnnie Shand Kydd.

photo-london 2005 promises to be an even greater celebration of the art of the image. It sees a number of international galleries added to its roster of top London and European participants. Coinciding with photography auctions taking place in the capital, photo-london also expands as a platform for photo-related events throughout May, including on and off-site talks from the V&A to East London.

photo-london is held in the Royal Academy of Arts' Burlington Gardens. This imposing neo-classical building stands at the top of Cork Street, a short walk from Sotheby's Bond Street and Christie's King Street, as well as the art dealers and galleries of Mayfair and St.James's. Minutes from Piccadilly and Green Park underground stations, Burlington Gardens is at the heart of London's art world.
