Why San Francisco?

PHOTOFAIRS | San Francisco is the leading contemporary fair dedicated to the photographic medium on the West Coast.

Due to its important photographic legacy and the strong regional support for the medium, PHOTOFAIRS carefully selected San Francisco in 2017 as the premier destination for its US edition. The first edition brought over 11,000 visitors and we welcome all to the Bay Area next February. 

San Francisco is home to leading institutions committed to championing photography. These include: The Pritzker Center for Photography — the US’s largest exhibition space and resource center dedicated to photography and housed at SFMOMA, the de Young Museum, and Pier 24 Photography.

The city is home to world-class museums, galleries, contemporary art collections and an informed collector base, all of whom have a resounding impact on the photography market.

PHOTOFAIRS | San Francisco provides a curated platform for visitors to purchase and celebrate photography on a truly international scale.
