A New Photo Fair Debuts in London

The center of the European market for photography has traditionally been Paris, thanks in part to longstanding support from the city’s institutions and, more recently, the dominance of Paris Photo as the leading photography fair this side of the Atlantic.

Now, Photo London, a new fair launched by the cultural consultancy Candlestar with support from the Luma Foundation, is aiming to fill this gap in the capital’s art market, with around 60 international and UK-based galleries, at Somerset House (21-24 May), wh ere the word “photography” was first coined by John Herschel in 1839.
