Photo London 2016 by Allison Wucher

The opening of the second annual Photo London fair at Somerset House was, of course, greeted with rain. Inclement and London are synonymous after all. Luckily, weather did not hinder the dedicated VIP guests from attending the coveted early preview opening on Wednesday, May 18th. The sprawling layout of the fair, which covers two floors and dives deep into the bowels of Somerset House, boasts over 80 photography dealers from all over the globe. The variety of spaces inhabited by the dealers make for a very eclectic viewing experience – and some would say a welcome change from the more staid and predictable open plan art fair constructions.
Highlights from Photo London included a stunning booth from Hans P. Kraus Jr. Fine Photographs, which features some beautiful 19th century prints in a number of different early printing techniques. Eric Franck Fine Art offered a great range of 20th century photographs – including a selection of images from Al Vandenberg’s new monograph, “On a Good Day.” Roman Road presents stunning and innovative alternative and traditional prints by Antony Cairns from his series, aptly called Process.

There were also three exhibitions within the fair, including the Photo London 2016 Master of Photography exhibition of Don McCullin (presented in association with Hamiltons’ Gallery), The Wilson Centre for Photography curated display of Craigie Horsefield Twelve, and, my personal favorite, Sergey Chilikov’s Photoprovocations, co-curated by the Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow.
