Specialist dealer James Kerr, who organises the photography fair, said: “We expect around 20 dealers, like last October when exhibitors reported good business with buyers actively searching for fresh material which had been in short supply during the pandemic.”

He added: “Collectors are looking for anything from daguerreotypes through rare ethnographic material to quirky later 20th century press prints. I’m aware of collectors looking for good ethnographic west Africa images and figurative and topographical material from the Indian subcontinent.”
