One of the most anticipated international photography events of the year, Paris Photo returns to the Grand Palais this November for its 22nd edition. The official image of Paris Photo 2018 is a work by Mickalene Thomas.

The 2018 edition of Photo Paris will offer a rich and diverse selection of photography, bringing together 167 galleries and 31 international publishers. In addition to PRISMES and Film, the fair will also inaugurate a new sector, Curiosa that will present an in-depth look at a specific topic or theme in photography each year.

Complementing the display of galleries and publishers, the event has prepared an eclectic artistic program comprised of special exhibitions, Platform conversations and Artist Talks.

Welcoming artists, gallerists, collectors and art enthusiasts, Paris Photo will be a wonderful place of discovery and rediscovery.

The Fair Program

This year, Paris Photo will honor women photographers in a special show curated by Fannie Escoulen, an independent curator. Taking will take the form of an itinerary entitled Elles x Paris Photo, the show will feature a selection of one hundred artworks, from the beginning of photography to the inevitable feminists of the 70s, also marked by the discovery of promising young contemporary artists.

Paris Photo will also present a selection from the McEvoy Family Collection in a show titled shego/hego/ego, including works by Dawoud Bey, Anne Collier, William Eggleston, Robert Mapplethorpe, Sigmar Polke, Cindy Sherman, and Laurie Simmons, among others.

First initiated in November 2012 by Aperture Foundation and Paris Photo, The PhotoBook Awards will once again celebrate the photobook’s contribution to the evolving narrative of Photography. On November 9th, the event will award three prizes – First PhotoBook, PhotoBook of the Year, and Photography Catalogue of the Year. The thirty-five shortlisted titles will be exhibited at the fair. The PhotoBook Awards is only one of the many prizes which will be awarded at the event.

An experimental forum held in the Grand Palais Auditorium on the upper level, the Platform will present a series of conversations is led by invited guests along diverse axes, while The Artist Talks will be exclusively dedicated to editorial projects by artists, who will share them with the public in a set format of 10 minutes followed by a period of Q/A.
