We are very pleased to welcome you to this 19th edition of Paris Photo. Over 140 leading galleries from 33 countries will be featured this year at the Grand Palais, presenting both historical and contemporary works. Joining them are 27 publishers and specialized art book dealers providing a complete panorama of the photographic medium.

For the first time this year, a selection of galleries will present large formats and serial works in a new curated exhibition sector in the Salon d’Honneur. The Salon d’Honneur will also host guest collector Enea Righi, who will present major works from one of Italy’s most important private collections featuring prominent artists such as Cy Twombly, Nan Goldin, and Hans-Peter Feldmann, among others.

Accentuating the cultural and social dynamic of the fair, the Paris Photo Platform will reunite key figures in the art world for a cycle of talks and discussions elaborating upon three axes: the collection, photography after the crisis, and photography and its relation to the book. In partnership with the Aperture Foundation and in celebration of the continuing narrative of photography, Paris Photo presents the 4th annual Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photobook Awards with the support of amana.

The programming is made possible thanks to the support and participation of our distinguished partners: Giorgio Armani and the “Acqua #6” exhibition; J.P. Morgan with a selection of works from the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection; BMW with works by Natasha Caruana, laureate of the BMW art & Culture Residency; Leica reveal a works by Stéphane Duroy and Paulo Nozolino, “J’étais là” ; and Pernod Ricard introducing its annual photographic commission, this year by Li Wei.

An exciting week for collectors, art world professionals, artists and amateurs of photography. In the meantime, with two Fairs worldwide, keep up to date on-line with all the latest events and news from our exhibitors and partner institutions with the Paris Photo Agenda.
