Photo London was created to give London an international photography event befitting the city’s status as a global cultural capital. Now in its fifth edition, Photo London has established itself as a world-class photography Fair and as a catalyst for London’s dynamic photography community. From the capital’s major museums, to its auction houses, galleries large and small, right into the burgeoning creative communities in the East End and South London, Photo London harnesses the city’s outstanding creative talent and brings together the world’s leading photographers, curators, exhibitors, dealers and the public to celebrate photography, the medium of our time.

Along with the selection of the world’s leading galleries showing at the Fair, Photo London presents the Discoverysection for the most exciting emerging galleries and artists; there is an original Public Programme bringing together special exhibitions, installations, a Talks Programme curated by William A. Ewing, renowned curator and writer, former Director of the Musée de l’Elysée, and former Director of Exhibitions at the International Center of Photography, New York. Each edition of the Fair also sees a number of Awards announced, headlined by the Photo London Master of Photography Award. Beyond the Fair, Photo London regularly hosts Pre-Fair Talks and related events engaging with the craft, market and knowledge of photography.

Photo London is a place to encounter the most innovative emerging artists, new work by established masters and rare vintage pieces, and as such is guided by a Curatorial Committee comprised of some the field’s most esteemed curators, critics and museum directors.

A high level Advisory Board advises on the development of Photo London. The members of the Board play a key role in encouraging the development of the various networks on which Photo London depends. The Advisory Board is committed to maintaining Photo London as a major event in the international art world calendar.

Photo London is produced by Candlestar, an internationally renowned cultural consultancy with an outstanding reputation within the field of photography and the arts. Candlestar produces the Prix Pictet on behalf of the Pictet Group.

Photo London is set amongst the spectacular neo-classical architecture of Somerset House, on the banks of the River Thames. From its 18th century origins, Somerset House has been a centre for debate and discussion – an intellectual powerhouse for the nation. It is claimed that it was here in 1839 that Sir John Herschel first coined the term ‘photography’, making it a fitting location for Photo London.

For Photo London 2017, more of Somerset House’s spaces will be opened up than ever before, bringing four floors of world-class photography to all corners of the site on an unprecedented scale.

Since its opening in 2000, Somerset House has built up a diverse and dynamic public programme of contemporary arts and culture, it is also home to a large community of creative businesses, artists and makers, including Somerset House Studios. A home to possibly the largest creative community in London, residents include 100 organisations from the arts and creative industries including Courtauld Gallery and Institute, King’s College London Cultural Institute and Sorrell Foundation, plus others ranging from advertising, branding, PR agencies and film production, to social enterprise and business support organisations. One of the city’s most spectacular and well-loved spaces, it is a place where art and culture is imagined, made and experienced by 3.4 million visitors every year.
