Photo London today announced details of the public talks that will take place at Somerset House from 18 – 22 May 2016. The daily programme will offer visitors to Photo London a rare chance to hear from some of the most important photographers, curators and commentators working today.
Photo London was created to give London an international photography event befitting the city’s status as a global cultural capital. Founded in 2015, it has already established itself as a world-class photography fair and as a catalyst for London’s dynamic photography community. From the capital’s major museums to its auction houses, galleries large and small, right into the burgeoning creative community in the East End and South London, Photo London harnesses the city’s outstanding creative talent and brings the world’s leading photographers, curators, exhibitors and dealers together with the public to celebrate photography, the medium of our time.
The 2016 talks programme is curated by William A. Ewing, distinguished curator and writer, former Director of the Musée de l’Elysée, and former Director of Exhibitions at the International Center of Photography, New York. Speakers include: NICK KNIGHT, MARY MCCARTNEY, MILES ALDRIDGE, MARTIN PARR, GRAHAM NASH, KATY GRANNAN AMONGST STAR LINE-UP FOR PHOTO LONDON TALKS PROGRAMME
