Old Billingsgate, London, UK
Artists: Group
Dates: 31 May to 3 June, 2007

This year’s photo-london, to be held at Old Billingsgate from 31st May to 3rd June 2007, features forty selected galleries and publishers from 9 countries, including 25 first-time participants. The largest contingent of exhibitors is from the UK (15), followed by France (6), The Netherlands, Spain and USA (4 each), Germany and Italy (2 each) and one representative from Belgium and Denmark. For the re-launch of photo-london a selection committee* was established to ensure that the fair meets the highest international standards.

The 2007 edition brings together a potent and refreshing mix of leading established and emerging contemporary art and photo galleries. Present at the fair will be the work of some 400 international photographers and artists, providing an unprecedented panoramic view of contemporary photography and its development since 1970.

Special events at photo-london include lectures, book-signings and a series of debates that brings together some of the world’s leading experts on photography. Programme highlights include a debate on “The Evolution of Contemporary Photography since 1970,” moderated by Tate Modern Director Vicente Todoli, talks on “How to Collect Photography” and “The Influence of Photo-Journalism.”

Every year photo-london will include a special focus on non-western photography, with the aim of showcasing and discovering new world-class talent. For 2007, photo-london’s special focus will be on India, with a debate on contemporary Indian photography.
