A platform for discovery and exchange, Paris Photo aims once again this year to unveil the best of historical and contemporary photography through the projects of 180 international galleries. 33 publishers will also be present, allowing more than 200 artists to attend the fair.
Paris Photo also boasts more than 68,000 visitors and an exclusive programme, built with the help of fair partners such as BMW or J.P. Morgan.
This year, 213 exhibitors from 31 countries will gather at the Grand Palais in 5 sectors – Main, Publishing, Prisms, Curiosa and Films – offering visitors the widest panorama of photographic works available on the market today.
Also worth discovering: the collection of the A Stichting Foundation, which questions our perception of the world at a time when images are overabundant. Conversations, artists’ signatures, Carte Blanche Étudiants, partner exhibitions and prizes follow one another during this week.
Elsa Leydier, winner of the Ruinart 2019 House Prize
For its second edition, the Ruinart Prize, organised with the support of the Picto Foundation, rewards, for example, one of the artists presented in Paris Photo’s Curiosa sector: Elsa Leydier, a French photographer born in 1988 and living in Rio de Janeiro.
Elsa is interested in the power of photography on the representation of territories and highlights the role of the image in the construction of the imagination of a natural environment.
Invited in September 2019, on the occasion of the harvest of the Maison en Champagne’s vineyard, Elsa Leydier shares her artistic vision of the link between nature and the men and women who work the vine.
The works from this residence are exhibited in the Promenoir Nord-Est of the Grand Palais for the 2019 edition of Paris Photo.
From 12pm to 8pm from Thursday 7 to Saturday 9 November
From 12pm to 7pm on Sunday November 10th
Grand Palais, Paris
