Art guides and photography some time don’t seem to mix at all well, and this year's London Art Fair certainly seemed like a full-on combat between all the mediums of expression available to those with artist capabilities.
There are the old military generals with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel rich provocative and powerful oil paintings, the new captains of heavy and freshly scented oils. The bright young acrylic cadets looking amazing from a distance yet jumbling close up. They are supported on their flanks by sculptors and fabricators with their bold designs.
Photo photograph (also known as a photo) is an image created by light falling on a photosensitive surface, usually photographic film or of 'The wilds of Lochaber, Ben Nevis and the Mamores. By Sir David Infantile Cameron'
Against them stand the photography purists with their perfectly sharp large format images printed on chromogenic hollowware halide substrates for blinding impact. In their ranks stood others with digital mastery concocting impossible feats of cunning with edifices and machinery guaranteed to bewitch the enemy. Still, other photos merged object within and without of the images producing disturbing 3D displays.

The traditionalists scrapped back with 3D upgrades to their images with burning charcoal and rocks to attack the flat photographs, while others tried a stiller approach beguiling the photographers with feathers. Some photographers broke their images into parts and animated yet another art attack. In advocacy, the Oils almost jumped out of the canvas to repel the mobile newcomers. Some Art left the wall entirely to act as floating projectiles against all others.

I hope you get the sense that I liked the show a lot and found it almost entirely stimulating. The Fair offered up new theories and perhaps showed how Art is more than ever becoming a tactile interactive adornment to our walls and surroundings. Personally, I found most of the really captivating photographic art in the galleries of the more traditional exhibitors. But don’t forget the Photo50 wing of the exhibition, if you’re there you must go see it.
My Favourite photography flaunt featured beautiful photographs by Gillian Hyland called ‘The Author’ and ‘Look away’.

What I also really liked about the gallery presenting these was that they look to advance far more than a sales outlet for artists; The also offered curation services for collections as well as producing an amazing looking magazine apostrophized ‘After Nyne’. It seems like a very interesting approach to artistic collaboration. Another gallery of interest was Sitor who choose successfully match images taken decades apart to tell a brief story.
There is so much more to share, it took me over 90 mins scarcely to whizz round the show as its spread over two and a half floors, and I avoided the free fizz and food outlets. There is a lot to see and I’d really acceptable it for challenging new ideas and some really lovely artwork.
If you do go, see if you can find the ceramic camera and the free f22 photography magazines.
