Royal Academy, Burlington Gardens

This show, in just its second year, has already earned the reputation as one of the most important photographic events in the UK. Featuring primarily the work of artists from the UK and Europe, Photo-London serves as a highly-selective snapshot of the best photography by contemporary artists.

50 galleries and institutions — culled from over 300 applicants — present some of the most thought-provoking work in the medium today, as well as masterworks from the 19th and 20th century.

Here are just 20 photos as an overview of the richness and diversity of the work this year.
