Tomorrow I head for Photo London. This inaugural London Photo Fair, presented in Somerset House, 21-24 May, promises to be something special and anyway what's not to like about London. The organizers sat this:
Photo London is a unique photography event. It will feature a major international photography fair of over 70 exhibitors, including the world’s leading photography galleries and publishers, alongside an innovative public programme supported by the LUMA Foundation. Photo London will showcase the broad range of photographic practice, from vintage to contemporary, in diverse and exciting scenarios, through a series of exhibitions, installations and live events in and around Somerset House. Exhibitions will include Beneath the Surface from the V&A collection, Sebastião Salgado’s Genesis in Platinum and Kaveh Golestan’s Prostitute, while a specially commissioned installation by Rut Blees Luxemburg will fill the Courtyard. Talks, music sessions and book signings around the fair will change the way you look at photography.
British photobook publisher Dewi Lewis will be at the fair and on Friday May 22 at 2.30pm I will be signing copies of my two most recent books published by Dewi. Some Things you Should Have Told Me and You Won't Be With Me Tomorrow.

Japanese photobook publisher Superlabo will also be in London and will be at Offprint London, presented in the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern from 6pm Friday May 22, closing 6pm Monday May 25. Here, over 150 artists, independent and self-publishers will be showing their wares. Superlabo will have my bookwork, How Humans Made God and also the collaborative edition Lost Home which consists of 10 separate bookworks in a slip-case, with my work amongst others.
