The Tim Hetherington Trust is proud to partner with Photo London (“The UK photography event of the year” - The Guardian) for this event.  Photo London was created to give London an international photography event befitting the city’s status as a global cultural capital. Now in its fourth edition, Photo London has established itself as a world-class photography fair and as a catalyst for London’s dynamic photography community. From the capital’s major museums, to its auction houses, galleries large and small, right into the burgeoning creative communities in the East End and South London, Photo London harnesses the city’s outstanding creative talent and brings together the world’s leading photographers, curators, exhibitors, dealers and the public to celebrate photography, the medium of our time.
