Photo50, London Art Fair
16 - 20 January 2013
This year’s London Art Fair, being hosted at the Business Design Centre, Islington, from 16 – 20 January 2013, sees the return of Photo50, the guest-curated annual showcase of contemporary photography. Anna McNay speaks to Nick Hackworth, this year’s curator, to find out more.
How did you come to be curating Photo50?
I believe Sue Steward, the photography critic for the Evening Standard who curated last year’s Photo 50, kindly recommended me.
And where does the title, A Cyclical Poem, come from?
‘History is a cyclic poem written by time upon the memories of man’ from A Defence of Poetry by Shelley.
