Photo London presents Collecting Contemporary Photography


Photo London gets an early start to their second edition scheduled for 19 - 22 May 2016, with the first of a series of pre-Fair talks.

Collecting Contemporary Photography offers a unique opportunity to discover more about the role of the artist and dealer in the contemporary photography market. The discussion will be an essential guide to Collecting from the perspective of a dealer, artist and curator and will examine how these roles interact with each other. The panelists will also explore the importance of photography within an art collection, and to what extent work is made in view of the commercial art world.

The panel consists of: Chris Littlewood, Director of Photography at Flowers Gallery Simon Roberts, artist And will be chaired by Zelda Cheatle, curator, editor and former gallerist.

Photo London was created to give London an international photography event befitting the city’s status as global cultural capital. Founded in 2015, it has already 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 community in the East End and South London, Photo London harnesses the city’s outstanding creative talent and brings the world's leading photographers, curators, exhibitors, dealers and the public to celebrate photography, the medium of our time.
