The event will comprise an exhibition showing work by more than 100 photographers, as well as lectures and seminars from photography industry-types and workshops for those less versed in the art of the photographic lens.

Londonewcastle Space, hosing the event, says, ‘In the last decade photography has become ubiquitous, produced and reproduced at a rate never before seen in any other form of artistic expression; exhibited and collected at every level of the art world.

‘125Live launches…as a celebration of all things photographic’.

The works in the exhibition aware all taken in the last ten years, and will be hung in the style of a ‘19th century French salon’, according to event organisers, in a range of sizes.

Genres span landscape, still-life, nudes, abstract, fashion and portraiture, with all the works available to buy.
