London Photograph Fair Changes Hands Again

By Alex Novak

The London Photograph Fair, which has been run by photo dealer James Kerr of Pump Park Vintage Photography for the last few years, will have new organizers after the Sunday, May 25th show. After May, the fair will be run by Daniel Newburg, the former director of Photo London, in conjunction with U.K. dealers Arnaud Delas and Jane Orde.

Originally created by Richard Meara, the show has grown from a simple table-top show into a mix of small booths and tables. It still remains one of the oldest such shows in the world. It is held at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury on Coram Street, WC1N 1HT, London. The hotel is very close to the Russell Square Tube Station, and a matter of a few minutes walk from both Euston and King's Cross/St. Pancras.

After the May show, two more fairs are planned for this year (September 14, which is tables only, and November 9, which will be a mix of tables and booths).
