Created in 2015, Photo London was intended to befit the capital’s cultural status. Now in its third year, the event has become a powerhouse for international galleries to showcase the revolution of an ever-expanding medium. This year, Aesthetica has chosen from a diverse selection of photographers to provide a glimpse into the truly inspiring developments that are taking place throughout the industry, spearheading a new generation of experimenters who are capturing the world in unprecedented ways. From digital to analogue, each image instils a sense of innovation, documenting an everyday that is richly steeped in narrative and identity. As one of the largest events of the year of its kind, Photo London also promises to host an unmissable programme of events, including individual exhibitions from their 2017 Master of Photography, Taryn Simon, as well as Juergen Teller and William Klein.
