West coast flower power: Rose Shoshana; The Mother of photography dealers, always enthusiastic and generous with her time was stuck in a badly lit overly warm corner. Her booth shows magnificent and rare Evelyn Hofer and William Eggleston dye transfer prints going for approximately the same price ($40k or less) as the uninventive pretentious void of a Jean-Baptiste Huynh print. Hello! Dye transfer prints are pure magic! This rare and complicated technique is the most vibrant expression at the heart of the historical renaissance of American color photography. Why have they not sold out?

Born in Illinois, in 1933, Bruce Davidson is an American documentary photographer. His initial foray into the world of street photography came at the age of ten, when he picked up a camera for the first time. Upon graduating college, he was drafted into the army and met the inspiring force that was Henri Cartier-Bresson. In 1958, Davidson joined Bresson’s successful collaborative company, Magnum Photos. His work presents an unflinching, in-depth social commentary on the unsettling reality of life in the streets, poverty, racial identity and discrimination. His documentation of the American Civil Rights movement is particularly profound. Davidson has been featured in countless exhibitions worldwide.

Other honorable mentions include Steve McCurry at Peter Fetterman, Irving Penn at Howard Greenberg and Chris Killip at Eric Franck Fine Art.  See the write up in full at ultravie.co.uk/blog

Stand Out Moments from PhotoLondon 2015

By Olivia Singer

This weekend, London's Somerset House was transformed into a giant photographic fair, with over 70 exhibitors descending on the capital for the inaugral edition of Photo London. With galleries from around the world bringing their finest examples of photography from William Eggleston to Nick Knight, Malick Sidibe to Nobuyaski Araki (who, in fact, seemed to appear in almost every room) alongside a brilliant programme of talks and screenings, the fair was an opportunity to celebrate some of the greatest names in the industry as well as discovering some new delights. Here, we look over some of the moments that particularly stood out...

Jo Ann Callis' Other Rooms at ROSEGALLERY
Jo Ann Callis' strangely sexual images manage to capture an elusive eroticism, her wonderfully saturated palette and suggestive-yet-awkward posturing a beautiful exploration of sexuality, femininity and domesticity. Originally shot in the early 70s, it was not until 2014 that Callis decided to exhibit them when she produced book Other Rooms and exhibited a full series at Santa Monica's ROSEGALLERY, and their presence at Photo London was delightfully disconcerting.

More than 20,000 people attended the Somerset House event over four days, in what has been hailed the largest photography fair ever staged in the capital.

Showcasing more than 2,000 images, Photo London featured 70 international galleries, and talks by more than 50 photographers and curators.

Among the dealers was Peter Fetterman, of the Peter Fetterman Gallery in Santa Monica, USA, who sold a Sebastião Salgado print of an iceberg for $50,000.

Fetterman told organizers: ‘We travelled 6,000 miles to come here and arriving at Photo London has felt like coming home.

‘Our gallery shows at eight fairs a year and none as well organized as this. We can’t wait for next year, already.’

Photo London has confirmed that next year’s show will be held, again at Somerset House, from 19-22 May.
