The London Photograph Fair has been London's marketplace for fine vintage photographs, albums and photobooks since 1982. It continues to be a great resource for dealers, collectors and curators from around the world - a best-kept secret for those in the know.

Our next fair will be at the Hellenic Centre Marylebone the 5th and 6th October 2019, coinciding with the FRIEZE ART FAIR and FRIEZE MASTERS nearby in Regent's Park.

The Special Edition of The London Photograph Fair - an annual event of selected exhibitors - was launched in 2015 to great acclaim at Two Temple Place, the former Astor mansion on the River Thames. In May 2017 the Special Edition moved to a new no less grand venue: The Great Hall at King's College London on the Strand, adjacent to Somerset House.  Our most recent fair was held the 18th and 19th of May 2019, as an independent Photo London Satellite Event.

At all London Photograph Fairs a great variety of works are on display and for sale, with dealers presenting their latest discoveries in this exciting ever changing field of vintage photography. The only fair in the UK dedicated to vintage or ‘classic’ photography, which we define as no more recent than 20 years, it is the marketplace for fine art, press and fashion photographs, to contemporary, modern and 19th century rarities. Our most recent fair saw museum quality works by Roger Fenton - presented on the bi-centenial of his birth - to rare 1960’s David Bailey fashion prints. At our next fair specialist book dealers will also offer a range of original and collectible photobooks as well as reference material.

Prices range from a few pounds into many thousands.

Whether an experienced collector or new to the field, you will find a relaxed atmosphere, a wealth of specialist knowledge at hand, and new photographic discoveries every time.
