The 26th edition of the largest international art fair dedicated to photography, Paris Photo, takes place at the Grand Palais Éphémère from November 9 to 12, 2023.

Every November, as photographers, galleries, artists and photo enthusiasts from around the world gather in the French capital, there is a flurry of photography-related events and activities across the city. In this year’s curation for Paris Photo, classic meets contemporary and black-and-white meets vivid color.

Within the rich tapestry of visual storytelling, you will find works by artists such as Hassan Hajjaj, Omar Victor Diop & Lee Shulman, Juergen Teller, David De Beyter and Vasantha Yogananthan, to name just a few.

Panel discussions and talks are an integral part of the event. It’s an outstanding way to gain insights into the world of photography and art, as well as providing valuable opportunities for learning and engagement.

Moderated by Emilie Lauriola (bookseller specialised in photography), Pascale Obolo (independent curator, Director of the African Art Book Fair), Véronique Prugnaud (Director of The Eyes) and Marc Feustel (author and independent curator), you can follow THE ARTIST TALKS, providing an intimate and insightful opportunity to connect with artists and gain a deeper understanding of their creative processes and publications.

There is also THE PLATFORM – an experimental forum: 4 days of conversations around diverse subjects central to current events, featuring personalities from the world of art and photography.

And certainly not to miss is the PARIS PHOTO APERTURE FOUNDATION PHOTO BOOK AWARDS: an annual photography book competition that recognizes outstanding achievements in photobook publishing.

This prestigious award celebrates the role of photobooks as a medium for photographers to share their work and for audiences to experience photography in a tangible and lasting format. Three awards will be presented on Friday, November 10: First PhotoBook, PhotoBook of the Year, and Photographic Catalogue of the Year.
