Photo London Cancelled

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 6, 2008

Valérie Fougeirol, director of Paris Photo and its London edition, has left the company "by mutual consent", forcing the cancellation of Photo London, scheduled for this May.

The London fair has been dogged with misfortune even before Reed Expositions (the organisers of Paris Photo) took over at the end of 2006. Dealers had complained about the cramped conditions of its Burlington Gardens venue since 2004, but the first revamped edition in Old Billingsgate market last May saw a poor turnout (despite eye-catching posters) as it was thought to be too close to other events including the Venice Biennale and Art Basel.

The organisers say that the event will return to London in 2009, but that "a full review of the challenges of the international photography market needs to be addressed." The Paris edition, which takes place in November, is still scheduled to go ahead.
