Classic Photograph Fair this May

The Classic Photograph Fair, a free photography event taking place in London, has announced its second edition will take place in Conway Hall, Holborn on May 13.

The fair, which focuses on classic and vintage photography, will take place during Photo London. The Classic Photograph fair celebrates photography dating from the earliest years of the medium. Over 20 exhibitors, including UK and continental dealers, will be present, and exhibitors will also include contemporary artists working with early processes, such as Anthony Jones’ cyanotypes and Michael Ford’s silver daguerreotypes.

The works on offer will include a range of vintage material – daguerreotypes, paper negatives, salt prints, albums, cased images – through to the 20th century, on the subjects of exploration and science, film and theatre, fashion and press photographs.

Founder of the event, Daniella Dangoor, said: “This fair is a wonderful opportunity for lovers of photography and first-time buyers to explore a range of material. Prices will range from £50 to tens of thousands of pounds.”

The Classic Photography Fair is sponsored by London-based Chiswick Auctions.
