The story of ART PHOTO EXPO began during Miami Art Basel 2007, which produced the first major fashion photography sales exhibition. This unexpected event by the profession and entitled "In Fashion Photo" brings together 20 of the most renowned photographers of their generation. An achievement at a time, when fashion photography was poorly regarded by galleries and various players in the contemporary art world. This exhibition welcomed more than 12,000 visitors in 4 days.
Following this initial success, in 2008 ART PHOTO EXPO moved into the Miami Art District by producing and financing a retrospective of supermodel Naomi Campbell. The works of the greatest fashion photographers are exhibited in giant format. A world first! The masters of art photography such as:
- Peter Lindbergh
- Jean Paul Goude
- David Lachapelle
- Simon Procter
- Gilles Bensimon
- Patrick Demarchelier
- Arthur Elgort
- Steven Klein
- Mario Testino
- Albert Watson
These Masters of fashion photography are gathered under the same roof and in a space specially designed by the renowned designer Stéphane Dupoux. This event has been covered by the world's media and has welcomed more than 35,000 visitors and more than2.5M$ of worldwide media coverage. Since 2007, thematic exhibitions and gallery openings have continued in prestigious locations. Thematic exhibitions follow one ano ther and a trusting collaboration is established with major international groups such as:
- Dorchester Collection

The ambition of Art Photo Expo Team, is to associate recognized artists with young emerging talents. These young talents very often become in their turn recognized artists and we are proud of that. ''We organize our exhibition themes with works of all styles such as: art photography, street art, pop art, sculpture and of course contemporary painting. For our exhibitions, it doesn't matter how famous or well known the artist is on the art market, the work has to be glamorous. I always favor glamour, because I know that glamour, like love, has no limits or boundaries."
