Is it possible for an iOS app to pull photos from Facebook?

I am building an application about photography. It has galleries that are updated every day. It would be helpful if I could pull the galleries from the events on a Facebook fan page. Is there a way to do that?

      Brother, Looks like you are the only one, on the internet world who has thought of making an app like that :)Now i get to know what you exactly wanted.

      Now for the application to get access to the Facebook page and to the photos you need the API that helps you integrates with the app to communicate with Facebook....
      Check out these Tutorials::::

      This will show you how to read the photo object from Facebook
      http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/api/photo/ 

      This one will teach you how to access the property of the object
      http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/api/ 

      This one here is the IOS tutorial for Facebook app
      http://developers.facebook.com/docs/mobile/ios/build/ 

      Read these and may these help you complete your app project and get success..
      :)

      Rest you have to write the code your self 
      :|)

      LAST [Option Idea];
      I got an idea, only try it if it works...
      Why don't you integrate another IOS app like photograbber
      (here is the link to it::http://code.google.com/p/photograbber/ )
      This app will download your photos and now you just need the code that will show you the pictures...,..
      I DON'T KNOW IF THAT WILL EVER WORK BUT GIVE IT A TRY... IF YOU THINK YOU CAN THEN TRY IT...
      [just thoughts].

      ALSO CHECK

      There was this website I reached which discussed and provided the HTML code that displayed once Facebook photos on to their website and I thought maybe by if you read the code you may get any idea on how to write the code for showing Facebook photos in your app...here is the website link...
