In less than 3 weeks, Photo-london will open its doors from 31 May to 3 June 2007 at Old Billingsgate. The 2007 edition brings together a potent and refreshing mix of 56 exhibitors from 10 countries. Present at the fair will be the work of some 400 international photographers and artists, providing an unprecedented panoramic view of contemporary photography and its development since 1970. Among the special events, there will be a programme of talks bringing together leading international experts to explore the questions of how to build a collection, the evolution of contemporary photography and the influence of photojournalism, the importance and future of the photo-book and the growing interest in non Western photography.
