“History of art is a history of great things neglected and ignored and mediocre things being admired. At different times things are different. The history of photography is a history of changes.” –Saul Leiter (more…)
Paris Photo is the world’s largest international art fair dedicated to photography. The annual event for collectors, professionals, artists, and enthusiasts, Paris Photo offers its visitors the most qualitative and diverse selection of artworks alongside a ambitious public programme with leading figures in the field.
Over 180 galleries and publishers will present a complete panorama of the history of photography: from vintage and modern works to contemporary creations, rare and limited editions, and avant-premiere book releases. The PRISMES sector, launched in 2015 in the prestigious Salon d’Honneur, will feature a curated presentation of large format, series, and video and/or installation works. Paris Photo is the occasion for visitors to expand their knowledge of the medium thanks to exhibitions, awards, signature sessions, special events, and talks and discussions with artists, curators, critics, and historians. The “In Paris during Paris Photo” program, created in partnership with renowned museums and arts organizations throughout the city of lights, offers visitors a complementary selection of exhibitions featuring some of the most important photographic collections in the world.
