From 8 – 11 November, a real photo fest took place in the capital of France – Paris Photo. This largest collector’s photography fair was organised for the 22nd time. The fair brought together 168 galleries and 31 editors from 30 countries. Moreover, as a part of the fair, several curatorial exhibitions, film screenings, author’s meetings and photo contests such as PhotoBook Award were organised.
Meanwhile, you could delve into many outstanding and signature photography exhibitions happening in the city. You can still visit the exhibition entitled “Dorothea Lange” at the Jeu De Paume (until 27 Jan 2019), or “Martine Franc” at the Fondation Cartier-Bresson (until 10 Feb 2019). The real must is to see a large group show “Les Nadares une légende photographique” (until 3 Feb 2019) about Felix Nadar and his family. A real treat for portraits lovers and the history of photography.
The only thing I can say is that four days is not enough to see everything happening during the Paris Photo, so you have to prepare well and choose what is more interesting for yourself.
