In 2019, Paris Photo will bring together 213 exhibitors from 31 countries, spread across 5 sectors offering visitors the largest panorama of premium photographic artworks available on the market today.

Within the Main Gallery Sector, the fair will gather a range of returning galleries such as ATLAS from London, embracing photography in all forms, with extensive holdings of works by 20th-century masters as well as a diverse range of contemporary photographers; BRUCE SILVERSTEIN from New York, focusing on the representation of an international roster of contemporary artists as well as established artists of great influence; CARLOS CARVALHO from Lisbon, supporting and promoting not only the work of a successful generation of artists but also established ones; HOWARD GREENBERG from New York, featuring a vast and ever-changing collection of some of the most important photographs in the medium; and GOODMAN from Johannesburg, Cape Town and London, representing artists whose work confronts entrenched power structures and inspires social change; but also newcomer ones such as BLINDSPOT from Hong Kong, representing both emerging and established artists, mainly from Hong Kong and the region but also beyond; GALERIST from Istanbul, nurturing the careers of distinguished Turkish contemporary artists and introducing their work to a global audience; and HAUSER & WIRTH from Zurich, London, New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Somerset and St. Moritz, representing over 75 artists and estates who have been instrumental in shaping its identity over the past quarter century; among others.

Inaugurated in 2018, the Curiosa sector will this year address photography’s increasingly unstable relationship to the physical world, illuminating the multiple realities of human experience. Among 14 exhibitors within the sector are CIBRIÁN from San Sebastian featuring Leandro Feal, David Meskhi at KORNFELD from Berlin and UN-SPACED from Paris with the works of Thomas Hauser on display.

The Program

In addition to gallery presentations, Paris Photo 2019 will present a range of special projects. As part of the accompanying programs, the Fondation A Stichting opens its doors to Paris Photo for an exhibition which brings together works by Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Harry Callahan, Mitch Epstein, Facundo de Zuviria, Paolo Gasparini, Nicholas Nixon, Martha Rosler, Judith Joy Ross, Larry Sultan and Jaime Villaseca. Other exhibitions include Collective Identity,  a selection of photographic portraits from the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection, Seriously Convivial, Pernod Ricard’s tenth carte blanche photography campaign and Carbon’s Casualties by Josh Haner.

For the third year in a row, the fair partners with Picto Foundation, and SNCF Gares & Connexions to launch a platform in promotion of the discovery and exposure of outstanding young talent within masters or bachelor programs in European schools for photography and the visual arts. Four selected student projects will be presented in a dedicated space at Paris Photo.

This edition welcomes back the PhotoBook Awards, initiated in 2012 by Aperture Foundation and Paris Photo, which will award three prizes: First PhotoBook, PhotoBook of the Year, and Photography Catalogue of the Year.

As part of the Talks & Conversations program, Paris Photo will present the Platform, 4 days of conversations led by personalities from the world of art and photography, and the Artist Talks which will put into perspective the link between the artist and the book in their artistic practice, editorial approach and in their publications.
