Photo Shanghai – China’s photography art fair

Photo Shanghai

The World Photography Organisation and Montgomery announce the inaugural edition of Photo Shanghai, the first international art fair dedicated to photography in China. It will run from 5-7 September at the landmark Shanghai Exhibition Centre.

The fair, which will be directed by Alexander Montague-Sparey (previously Director, Head of Photograph Department, Christie’s London) has been created in direct response to the increasing demand by audiences from across Asia-Pacific, and beyond, to discover accessible and collectable photography. Galleries from across the world now have a unique platform in China and the opportunity to establish and extend their network of buyers in the Asia-Pacific region.

With its mass appeal, photography is perhaps the most prolific artistic medium of our era and is rapidly expanding. The Chinese art market is particularly buoyant with a 31% increase in 2013 and an increasingly stable and loyal collector base.
