Photo London 2019: a focus on photographic history / London: 16-19 May 2019

Photo London prides itself on being the best place to discover the future directions of photography; many of which can be found in its acclaimed Discovery section which showcases the very best in emerging talent. However as its venue Somerset House was the place that Sir John Herschel first coined the term ‘photography’ in 1838, it is determined to showcase the rich history of the medium. This year Photo London hosts The Essential Fenton a major exhibition of work by the great pioneering photographer Roger Fenton curated by Robert Hershkowitz and supported by the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Wilson Centre for Photography (see image, right). The show will coincide with a panel discussion on Fenton with Sophie Gordon, Hope Kingsley, Martin Barnes & Francis Hodgson. Alongside this a many of our galleries will be bringing exciting historic works.
