China’s only international art fair devoted to the photographic medium is returning for a sixth year this month. Photofairs is back bigger and bolder than ever, with plenty in store for fans of visual arts over the course of three days, from September 20-22. 

The 2019 edition will feature works by well-known names such as Marina Abramovic, Yang Fudong, Vivian Maier and Robert Mapplethorpe, while the winner of the newly-introduced Exposure Award, Noémie Goudal from Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire will exhibit alongside commendations from the award’s judges, including submissions from Morocco, New York and Beijing.  

Here we highlight some of our favorite images that will be on show during Photofairs:
