Why should you exhibit?
Photo Independent is an annual fair of fine art photography which began in Hollywood, California, in 2014 opposite Paris Photo. As the first photographer / exhibitor art fair to directly showcase fine art photographers, Photo Independent has helped more than 1,000 photographers gain the valuable exposure and connections they seek.
If your goal is to get your work in front of collectors, gallery and museum directors, curators, publishers and an audience that loves photography, Photo Independent is the best art fair in the world for you!
The opportunity to exhibit at Photo Independent was a fantastic experience, for both my professional and personal photography career. Having my own booth was a great way to curate my own body of work, and also have the space to show it all together. The intimacy of the fair allowed me to interact with photography curators, professionals, artists and viewers in a personal setting that created lasting contacts and connections. I would definitely exhibit at Photo Independent again and strongly recommend it to other photographers looking to get their work shown!
I love Photo Independent! I believe artists should develop their own lists of contacts and collectors to empower themselves so they can become less reliant on dealers and galleries for their livelihoods.
My booth at Photo Independent got me a two book deal with Schiffer Publishing. AMERICAN CARNIVAL is coming out later this year followed by THE GREAT NORTHWEST… and if those go well, we are planning a series of six more regional photo books. This is a kind of dream I've always had. Photo Independent made it for real.
Photo Independent was the opportunity for me to enter the professional world of photography collectors, gallerists, curators and other serious photographers who value the art of photography and are willing to pay for it.
