The overwhelming success of Switzerland’s first art fair for photography in June 2015 can be explained with the following:
During the month of June, there is only one art fair that has a global impact on the entire art world – Art Basel is the premier art fair on the globe. Every single person that is interested in art, be it buying, selling or collecting, has to pay Art Basel a visit.
Put simple: If you are interested in art, you have to visit Art Basel, if you are interested in photography, you have to be at photo basel.
The key to photo basel’s success lies in the selection of the highest quality of galleries, showing a combination of emerging talents as well as classic photography. At the same time as Art Basel and only minutes away of Art Basel’s fairground. photo basel has it’s very own beautiful setting at Volkshaus and is celebrating a down to earth familiar style.
