Still Photography? London's first fair of the year opens with a must see exhibition curated by Sue Steward

Simon Baker, Esther Teichmann, Sue Steward & yours truly.

Well hello again readers, it has been a very busy week with the years first art fair in full swing & well worth the time to visit. To visit The London Art Fair is easy, just follow the link for more details. 

I had been asked to join a panel discussing 'Photo50 : THE NEW ALCHEMISTS: Contemporary Photographers Transcending The Print', expertly curated by Sue Steward & thought the least I could do was to tell you about it & encourage you to go & see the show & indeed the fair before it ends tomorrow at 5pm.

Sue Steward as the chair, myself, Esther Teichmann (artist & senior lecturer at the London College of Communications) & Simon Baker (Curator of Photography & International Art at Tate) were all given time to speak individually about the show & the traditions & developments within the field of photography with regards to its expanding definitions as explored by Photo50. I will be posting on the many & varied discussions which arose from this & of course explore the work of the artists that were in the show as well as my usual comparative & illustrative accompaniments.

I will speak at a bit more length later in the week. So don't stall, go & see it before it ends & see if you agree or disagree with the opinions in my next few posts!
