The fifth edition of Photo Basel, which runs from June 11 through 16, will run concurrently with the modern and contemporary art fair Art Basel.
The fair, curated by photographer expert Daniel Blochwitz, will be expanding to span two floors of the Volkshaus Basel for the first time.
It will bring together 41 exhibitors from both emerging and established international galleries, among which are the Aperture Foundation, Carlos Carvalho, Benrido and Camara Oscura Galeria de Arte.
Highlighted works include shots by American fashion photographer Arthur Elgort, who is best known for his collaboration with Vogue magazine; South Korean photographer Daesung Lee, who blurs the boundaries between documentary image and fiction; and German photographer Loretta Lux, who specializes in surreal portraits of young children.
For the second time, Photo Basel will also be presenting a special Master Cabinet section, which showcases selected vintage prints from participating galleries that are all for sale.
This edition, entitled "Tender Moments," will particularly explore people's need for affection, as well as the vulnerability of human relationships.
"The fair provides the photographic community with an excellent opportunity to highlight some of the most interesting emerging and established photographers of the last century. I look forward to seeing how gallerists will use the additional space provided by the expansion to curate their booths," said curator David Blochwitz in a statement.
Photo Basel runs June 11 to 16 at Volkshaus Basel, in Switzerland. Additional information about the fair can be found at http://www.photo-basel.com/.
