Doing Photo London

Photo London, the capital’s biggest celebration of photography, returns to Somerset House for its seventh edition this weekend. Installed across the historic house and courtyard, it brings together more than 100 exhibitors from across the globe to present the very best of the past, present and future of photography.

Significant solo presentations at this year’s fair include Mikhael Subtozky at Goodman Gallery and Edward Burtynsky at Flowers Gallery. Also worthy of note is Aperture’s presentation, which brings together Nan Goldin, Robert Capa and Viviane Sassen, among others.

Elsewhere, you’ll find a solo exhibition of key works by Nick Knight and a special presentation dedicated to Frank Horvat’s fashion work and images depicting Paris at night.
But make sure that you save time for the galleries devoting their booths to supporting Ukraine. Paris-based Alexandra de Viveiros, for instance, is presenting seven artists belonging to the celebrated Kharkiv School, while Ilex Gallery from Warsaw is exhibiting works by contemporary photographers alongside those by artists from the Kharkiv school.

Once you’ve had your fill, scope out the Discovery section, which includes a special presentation on ‘Photography Crossing Boundaries’ featuring sculpture, NFTs and The Rainbow Camera by artists Walter and Zoniel.

And that’s not all. Accompanying the physical fair is a comprehensive Talks Programme curated by William A Ewing and an online edition, which runs until 29 May.
