Paris Photo 2019 07.11.2019 - 10.11.2019 GRAND PALAIS PARIS

It is with great pleasure that we present to you to this 23 rd edition of Paris Photo, in the heart of the Paris at the historic Grand Palais.

A platform for discovery and exchange, Paris Photo aims once again this year to unveil the best of photography, over nearly two centuries, proposed by 180 galleries reunited from around the world. 33 publishers join this exuberance, because photography would not exist without the support of the book, essential in the visibility and the knowledge that it brings to the med ium.

Paris Photo also presents an ambitious program, created with the help of our partners, including BMW, presenting the work of their laureate, Emeric Lhuisset, and J.P. Morgan, celebrating the anniversary of th e JPMorganChase Art Collection.

We are also proud to offer you the occasion to discover the Fondation A Stichting with an exhibition that questions our perception in a world of overabundant images. Conversations, artists’ signatures, the 4 laureates of the Carte Blanche Students, special exhibition s and awards are all part of a dynamic week that will nourish our sensibilities and develop our understanding of the medium.

Finally, during the week of the fair, our “In Paris During Paris Photo” program offers you an extensive selection of photography ex hibitions throughout the city as well as more exclusive offers for our most prestigious guests. We wish you numerous discoveries and enriching encounters at the fair this year with an opening for accredited press from 3pm, November 6th and a public openin g from November 7

10th. And do not forget to save the date for Paris Photo New York, from April 1st to 5th, 2020!
