This May, a new and exciting international photography art fair will take place for the first time in London. The Photo Art Fair is a four-day exhibition that will showcase the work of 50 established and up-and-coming photographers from around the world.

Our very own Gavin Watson was selected from thousands of  photographers to show his work at the fair. Working closely with Susie Babchick (Photo Art Fair panelist and  trustee of the Corinne Day Estate), Gavin has selected six  exclusive images from his archive to exhibit and sell.
