On November 10th, the 20th edition of Paris Photo, international art fair dedicated to the photographic medium, opens to dealers, collectors, curators, artists and art aficionados.

Paris Photo’s mission, since its creation in 1997, is to reunite an exceptional selection of artworks in an exploration of photography in all its forms, from vintage works to contemporary creations, from the world’s premier galleries and book dealers.

Today the fair awaits some 60 000 visitors who will be able to discover 153 galleries, in both the main sector and PRISMES dedicated to large formats and series in the Salon d’Honneur. 30 international publishers complete this panorama, to which we add the exhibitions of our official partners, JPMorgan presenting a selection of their collection, and BMW with Alinka Echeverria, as well as our associate partners, Leica and the Oscar Barnack Award, Pernod Ricard with Omar Victor Diop, Erwin Olaf with Ruinart, and young artists presented by Huawei, and which contribute to enrich this year’s fair. Our partners are warmly thanked.

The 20th edition merits an exceptional programme. On this occasion Paris Photo will release a special publication, historical and contributive, coedited with Xavier Barral, highlighting key moments in the history of the fair. Beyond the Grand Palais, a carte blanche has been awarded to Raphaël Dallaporta who proposes to travelers at the Gare du Nord a large-scale photo-installation. Beginning October, Paris Photo is also on-the-air with Radio Nova with guest curators and artists who will give voice to selected images. Discover the images as they are revealed via the Paris Photo et Radio Nova websites.
