New photography fair Photo London announced
03 January 2014
Candlestar has teamed up with the LUMA Foundation to launch a brand new photography fair in London! The fair will present a special focus on collectors and collections, with up to 70 major international galleries taking part. The event will also include an innovative programme of talks, lectures, screenings and special events and is scheduled for May 2015 at Somerset House. Candlestar specialises in the development of innovative art and education projects, whilst the non-profit LUMA Foundation supports independent artists and institutions working across art, photography, publishing and multimedia.
The project has the support of Boris Johnson, who stated ‘At a time when so many of us are using our smartphones to capture images of the people and sights around us, we shouldn’t forget photography’s significance as a long-standing art form”.
