Reed Expositions France, Paris Photo's owner and organiser, has acquired Photo-London.
Photo-London was launched in May 2004 at the Royal Academy of Arts' Burlington Gardens in central London by Daniel Newburg, publisher of Pluk Magazine and director of the Artandphotographs gallery. Reed Expositions now owns a number of photography and art fairs, including Paris Photo and FIAC in France, ViennaFair in Austria and Miart in Milan. The London fair will add to its show holdings.
Paris Photo director Valérie Fougeirol and her team will be in charge of Photo-London and its development. Daniel Newburg will lend his support to the organizing team as artistic director.
The fourth Photo-London will take place May 31-June 3, 2007.
The first major change will be its new venue, the Old Billingsgate, a 19th-century market building designed by Sir Horace Jones and entirely renovated in 1988 by acclaimed architect Richard Rogers. It is situated on the Thames, in the City, not far from the Tower of London. With its 7,800 square meters of floor space, Photo-London will host some 60 exhibitors--both international galleries and publishers--showing modern and contemporary photography.
