The show truly aims to nourish and nurture this noble art form. The participating galleries showcase modern and contemporary photographs from both well-known artists and emerging talents. Another key point is the broad price range that meet almost all budgets. Therefore, the fair gathers a various public, from seasoned collectors to first-time buyers, alongside museums curators, journalist and simply art lovers. The venue is Volkshaus Basel, an exciting, newly renovated space that includes an events room, a beer garden, a restaurant and a club as well.
