“As the most international edition of photo basel so far, I am extremely excited for this year’s fair to show a diverse range of photographers and galleries from four continents,” says Photo Basel director Sven Eisenhut. “It is amazing to see that after two successful editions we are steadily gaining momentum. This third edition will give the avid collector and art lover such an outstanding overview of the fine art photography scene. There is a tremendous amount of discovery to make this year.”
