The annual Frieze Art Fair opens this week in Regent’s Park, including art galleries from around the world exhibiting fine art and photographs by Paul Graham, Robert Mapplethorpe, William Eggleston and Wolfgang Tillmans.

The fair kicks off on Thursday at 1.30pm with a talk chaired by Christy Lange, the associate editor of Frieze, bringing together photographer Taryn Simon and photographic duo Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin (who are shortly publishing War Primer 2, a 21st century response to Bertolt Brecht’s classic book). The talk is titled Shooting Gallery: The Problems of Photographic Representation, and aims to investigate the relationship between photojournalism and art photography.

Frieze Art Fair isn’t open to galleries that only sell photography (as detailed in BJP) in October 2010, but it does include a number of galleries which sell photographic prints alongside other art works, including: Sadie Coles HQ, which represents Hellen van Meene; Yvon Lambert (Candida Hofer and Idris Khan); Anthony Reynolds Gallery (Richard Billingham and Paul Graham) and David Zwirner (Philip-Lorca diCorcia and Thomas Ruff). The fair runs 13-16 October and entry for one day costs £29 (including booking fee). More information can be found at www.friezeartfair.com.
