More than 20,000 visitors attend first edition of Photo London
70 galleries from 20 countries participated in the inaugural edition of Photo London , along with 10 publishers and 3 special exhibitors. The fair received an astounding 20,000 visitors to Somerset House last week, which was opened by Mayor of London Boris Johnson on Wednesday. The fair saw incredible photographs from all over the world and strong sales across a range of photography from vintage and rare prints to contemporary and new work by established and emerging talent.
Michael Benson, Director of Photo London said,
“The reaction to our first edition has been astonishing – far exceeding our own expectations and predictions. Indeed many of our exhibitors have told us that Photo London is the best art fair they have ever attended. Our aim was not to be the biggest, simply to be the best and with our first edition we have taken a huge stride in that direction.”
The dates for next year have already been announced as 19th-22nd May 2016.
