The Asia-Pacific region gets its own international photography fair when Photo Shanghai debuts September 5-7. Located in the Shanghai Exhibition Centre, the fair is directed by Alexander Montague-Sparey, previously head of photographs at Christie’s London. With some 40 photography galleries from around the world, the fair will also include talks by photographers Roger Ballen, Birdhead, and Martin Parr and a panel on the Chinese Photo Book and a panel on Chinese contemporary photography (with ICP curator Chris Phillips and artist RongDong), among others.
