Three major exhibitions, Don McCullin in association with Hamiltons; Sergey Chilikov in association with Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow and portraits by Craigie Horsfield from the collection of the Wilson Centre for Photography this years show was a truly international event that further underlines London as a world centre for the medium.
