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.

Cultural Discoveries – Photo London
Jessica Jackson Hutchins, Timothy Taylor Gallery
Jessica Jackson Hutchins’ practice is difficult to define, restlessly evolving and engaging with a multiplicity of formal vocabularies, and exploring topics from the absurd to the profound.
The Pagan Ceremony of a People Abandoned by Gods
A man with several ideas, Roberto Cuoghi has many personalities. His opening show at ICA in Autumn 2008 pushes the boundaries of sound, art and installation.
Last Seen Entering The Biltmore, South London Gallery, London
With a title which references the infamous Black Dahlia murder in 1940s Hollywood, Last Seen Entering The Biltmore is a group exhibition which considers the idea of artifice and draws attention to the idea of the theatrical “backstage” as a threshold where transformation takes place.
