The FIAC is over, which means the biggest photo fair of the year can take its place – Paris Photo is back at the Grand Palais!

Here’s all the info.
Paris Photo au Grand Palais du 9 au 12 novembre 2017If you love photography, Paris Photo at the Grand Palais is a no brainer. With almost 150 galleries, around thirty specialised publishers and Karl Lagerfeld as guest of honour, it really isn’t to be missed.

During the four-day event, you’ll have a hard time beating exhaustion. There’s a lot to do and see, including:

– a selection of films at the the MK2 cinema in the Grand Palais
La Plateforme, an experimental forum
– a carte blanche by four photography students presented at the Gare du Nord train station until the end of November. More info here
– book signings by photographers including Sophie Calle, Raymond Depardon, William Klein, David Lynch, Martin Parr…
– the Paris Photo Book Prize (or rather three prizes – First Book, Book of the Year and Photo Catalogue of the Year)
– a photo trail and selection prepared by Karl Lagerfeld, also available in book form via Steidl
– the Leica Prize…

Of course that’s not even the half of it. For the full programme, check out the (French) press release at the bottom of this article.

And please do go and see our pals from the Galerie Esther Woerdehoff who have many wonders to show you, including a new, exclusive selection of twelve prints by Karlheinz Weinberger (a wonderful book has also just been published).
