“We are very excited about our 2015 edition of PHOTO INDEPENDENT. Our first year was quite successful for our participating artists. Many sold works and some have received gallery representation. With that in mind, we’ve expanded to include a gallery section to facilitate a more direct connection between artists, collectors and galleries. We’ve also launched a book section. These three components provide something for every photo lover,” states Chris Davies, Founder & Producer of the fair.
