Somerset House

A major international photography event in the heart of London

Photo London was created in 2015 to give London an international photography event befitting the city’s status as a global cultural capital. Hosted each May at Somerset House, it has already established itself as a world-class photography fair and a catalyst for London’s dynamic photography community.

"The UK photography event of the year"

The Guardian

Now in its fourth edition, Photo London 2018 will showcase over 80 Exhibitors including many of the world’s leading galleries and publishers; the Public Programme will feature major exhibitions, talks, awards and installations that will reflect on the rich history of the medium and its future directions.




Photo London selected Taryn Simon as its Master of Photography for 2017, whose work meticulously mines, questions and upsets the certainty that the photographic image and archive asserts. She will present Image Atlas at the fair, which investigates cultural differences and similarities by indexing top image results for given search terms across local search engines throughout the world.

Other highlights included photographer Jeurgen Teller taking over the Great Arch Hall, a special exhibition from acclaimed artist and filmmaker Isaac Julien and a new virtual reality artwork by Mat Collishaw.
