It’s short, it’s a must-see, it’s solely female and it’s the future—welcome to a new age of image making. Photo London, a relatively new international photography event taking over the British capital this weekend, reaffirms the city’s status as a global cultural capital. Founded in 2015, it has established itself as a world-class photography fair and a catalyst for London’s vigorous photography community, from the capital’s major museums to intimate galleries. So what’s good?
At the Annroy Gallery, Rankin and Hunger Magazine are giving a platform to seven emerging artists who are redefining fashion and documentary photography. The Future Visions expo includes contributors Trisha Ward, Arvida Byström, Scarlett Carlos Clarke and Zuza Krajewska, among others. These talents present a glimpse into the (near) future of photography, where images defy the conventions and restrictions of mainstream media, where the influence of past visionaries is combined with a desire to break new ground.
