Melbourne’s Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) is launching its inaugural CCP Photo Fair to celebrate the work of nine leading Australian photographers.

Presented by CCP, Melbourne’s most prominent venue for photo-based art, the boutique four-day event will showcase over 70 artworks from renowned Australian photographers. Traversing the commercial and art worlds, all exhibited works will be available for purchase. The fair will also include a curated program of events, panel discussions and book launches.

Taking place from 15 to 18 August, the CCP Photo Fair reflects the popularity of art fairs worldwide and responds to the growing trend of experience-based art. It will target the existing and growing photographic arts community, as well as extend to new audiences both locally and nationally.

The nine selected artists taking part in the CCP Photo Fair are George Apostolidis, Kate Ballis, Anita Beaney, Tom Blachford, Jo Duck, James Geer, Tom Ross, Isamu Sawa and Saskia Wilson.

Established in 1986 by the photographic community as a not-for-profit exhibition and resource centre, CCP is presenting the CCP Photo Fair as a new initiative, which will expand photographic audiences while supporting its development and presentation of lens-based artists.

Communications Collective is pleased to work with CCP and media partner Broadsheet.
