Photo-London Kicks Off May 19-23

Photo-London is the first annual art fair in Britain solely dedicated to photography. Galleries and dealers from all over the world will be participating in the event, which opens with a gala private view on May 19 and regular public viewing from May 20th-23, 2004. Photo-London will be held at the Royal Academy of Arts at 6 Burlington Gardens.

Work on display will include photography from established and emerging contemporary artists, important post-war photography, vintage 19th and 20th-century masterworks, as well as film and video.

Fifty international galleries will show works by artists ranging from Julia Margaret Cameron, Man Ray and Bill Brandt to David Bailey, Cindy Sherman and Andreas Gursky.

Photo-London coincides with major photography auctions taking place in the capital and will be the centerpiece of the new annual London Photo Week, which will promote photographic exhibitions and special events in public and private art galleries, as well as retail shops, restaurants and bars across the city. Already scheduled for London Photo Week are a Bill Brandt retrospective at the V&A, World Press Photos at the Royal Festival Hall, Cecil Beaton Portraits at the National Portrait Gallery and Tina

Modotti and Edward Weston: The Mexico Years at the Barbican. London Photo Week is expected to raise awareness worldwide for photography.
