For nearly two decades, the annual Paris Photo fair has punctuated the photography’s world fall calendar by bringing together some of the top artists, collectors and professionals to the City of Light. This year’s edition promises to be no different: thousands of lovely images and an exciting, stimulating week of presentations, discussions, signings and off-shoot programming.
As ever, the fair this year is underpinned by the invited galleries. 140, from 33 countries, will be featured 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.
As in the past few years, the photo-book will have a prominent place. In partnership with the Aperture Foundation, Paris Photo presents the 2015 Paris Photo-Aperture Foundation Photobook Awards ( see last year’s winners!). From just over 1,000 titles, the Awards will present a shortlist of 35 books. There will ultimately be three winners in the following categories: “First PhotoBook,” “PhotoBook of the Year,” and “Photography Catalogue of the Year.” READ ALL
