Benjamin Alexander Huseby will exhibit a photograph of skateboarders at London's South Bank at the exhibition curated by Burberry's creative director, Christopher Bailey.

Huseby's photo was taken in 2000 and was part of a series named 'Young Blood.

Christopher Bailey has chosen a selection of his favourite photographs of the many facets of London, in a celebration of the creativity, diversity and history of the city. From John Deakin's iconic images of 1950s Soho bohemia at The Colony Club, to Hedi Slimane's contemporary view of London hedonism; the exhibition will reflect the designer's fascination with the people and the places that have contributed to creative life in the city.

Among other photographers whose work will be part of the exhibition are Sam Taylor-Wood, Tim Walker, Mary McCartney Donald, Johnny Shand Kydd, Mick Rock, Daniel Farson, Roger Maine and Robert Whitaker.

photo-london debuted in May 2004 as London's first international photography fair. Around fifty exhibitors from ten countries showed a stunning range of work from 19th century daguerreotypes to contemporary video. The fair featured a special exhibition of photographs by Johnnie Shand Kydd.

photo-london 2005 built on this success, and saw a number of international galleries added to its roster of top London and European participants. Coinciding with photography auctions taking place in the capital, photo-london 2005 expanded as a platform for photo-related events throughout May, including on and off-site talks from the V&A to East London.

photo-london 2006 is held in the Royal Academy of Arts' Burlington Gardens. This imposing neo-classical building stands at the top of Cork Street, a short walk from Sotheby's Bond Street and Christie's King Street, as well as the art dealers and galleries of Mayfair and St. James's. Minutes from Piccadilly and Green Park underground stations, Burlington Gardens is at the heart of London's art world.
