Complementing the Bay Area’s strong photographic legacy, the inaugural edition of PHOTOFAIRS | San Francisco features a selection of 34 national and international galleries, representing 14 countries and 22 cities worldwide, showcasing today’s most significant artists across its exhibiting sectors and public program.
Drawing on the international reach from the majority of the participating galleries who have exhibition spaces outside of the United States, the curated environment will bring together blue-chip vintage material alongside contemporary photographic works of art. New and seasoned collectors alike will experience a breadth of editioned and unique photography that will be emphasized across many of the fair’s public programs and platforms.
The fair will focus on presenting international artists never before seen in the Bay Area, and will see the début of new work by artists including Cortis & Sonderegger, Ahmet Ertuğ, Martin Kollar, Anja Niemi, Eric Pillot, Wang Ningde, Jordan Sullivan, Ester Vonplon and Tyler Udall. PHOTOFAIRS will also celebrate significant photographic talents from the United States’ West Coast, highlighting such artists as John Chiara, Jim Campbell, Paul Fusco, Mona Kuhn and SFMOMA’s prestigious SECA award winner Sean McFarland.
