Photo London next month

The annual photographic event, Photo London, will be held from 31 May to 3 June.
Last year, the mixture was quite good – collectible photobooks and new book signings; old and new displays of photography from around the world on sale from exhibitors. Now, Photo London has been taken over by multinational Reed Exhibitions, who are responsible for the annual Paris Photo in the autumn.
There is also now a conscious shift to contemporary photography after 1970, which I think is a shame — not that I’m saying that photography after 1970 is not good, far from it. But being a photography show the focus will probably be on selling/collecting overpriced photography with mass interest. Ho hum. Also on the 31st of May, is the Christie’s photobook auction number two. The catalogue is not yet available to browse but you can visit the forum at Photobook guide to discuss.
