Photo London

Hailed as “the UK Photography event of the year” by the Guardian, Photo London was created by Candlestar in 2015 to give London an international photography event befitting the city’s status as a global cultural capital. Now in its sixth edition, Photo London has established itself as a world-class photography fair and as a catalyst for London’s dynamic photography community.

Prix Pictet

Since its inception in 2008, the Prix Pictet has been produced and managed by Candlestar and is now recognised as the world’s most prestigious photography prize. The award was founded by the Pictet Group with the mandate to use photography to move beyond cliche and deliver powerful messages about sustainability to a global audience.

Design Studio

Our Design Studio is best placed to bring together an expert team for both large and small scale projects. Alongside exhibition design and the formulation of international touring programmes, we specialise in the production of multidisciplinary events, competitions and talks programmes that focus on photography and the wider visual arts.
