Autumn is here and it’s brought PARIS PHOTO with it. The international photo fair welcomes 128 galleries and 23 photography book experts to the Grand Palais in Paris. 22 countries will be represented in total.
The ‘Recent Acquisitions’ exhibition offers a glimpse into the photography collection of LACMA (Los Angeles), Photo Museum Winterthur (Switzerland) and Huis Marseille (Amsterdam). The ‘Private Collection’ features the ‘Archive of Modern Conflict’ with pictures by mostly unknown photographers and the ‘Open Book’ show honours publications by Bernd & Hilla Becher.
And to give you a little teaser, here’s a quote from our friend Rolf Scheider: ‘would you like to see Karl Lagerfeld in the flesh and have him sign a book for you? Then you have to go! Karl will be joined by hundreds of famous photographers such as Thomas Ruff, Hilla Becher,Elliot Erwitt , Martin Parr, William Klein and this year even David Lynch.’ And you’ll also see Rolf there too of course.
But naturally Paris Photo also attracts interesting side events … This year the NOFOUND PHOTO FAIR at Garage Turenne’s fresh viewpoints by contemporary and young photographers once again stand out.
The get together I WANT YOUR PICTURE presents a collection of young fashion photographers for the second time in an exhibition that will run from 15 – 17 November and which includes their Welcome Warm up. The private view takes place on the 15th at Espace Commines. Julien Hattab curated the show.
Julien tells GoSee: ‘Actually this event was born of a desire to introduce professional and international photographers from fashion and beauty, to reveal their talent and personal work to a public from creative industry and decision makers (art directors, art buyers, directors of the picture, collectors ..). The particularity of IWYP is, in addition, the opportunity to meet live photographers to create new collaborations. Photographers were chosen by our team based on their skills and abilities (of course, the choice is always subjective, but we believe we have found an interesting and challenging selection of artists). This is the second edition, but certainly not the last .. We already have requests for next year.’
