Dive into the breadth of images that Photo London 2016 boasts. Running from 19 until 22 May, the event spans decades, genres and use of both analogue and digital methods, showcasing an evolution of the science and artistic practice of photography. Created in 2015 by Michael Benson and Fariba Farshad, Photo London originated as a celebration that would befit London’s cultural and global status, and has since continued to draw from a rich and thriving community of international galleries and practitioners. The collection of works reflects the complexity and endurance of the art form. Contrasting the personal with the universal, the contemporary with the historical, Photo London exists as an anthology of responses to the world around us. Presented are a selection of works from the immensely dynamic whole. Here the audience is allowed into projected and highly kaleidoscopic narratives. For tickets, visit www.photolondon.org.
