Paris Photo Announces New Venue in 2011 and Julien Frydman as Its New Director
The 2011 edition will mark the 15th anniversary of Paris Photo.
PARIS.- Jean-Daniel Compain, Managing Director for Culture and Leisure at Reed Expositions, organiser for the event, announces that Paris Photo is moving to the Grand Palais, the finest setting that Paris can offer to photography, from 9th to 13th November 2011. This prestigious location will without a doubt, add to Paris Photo's unique international position and make it an even greater fixture of Paris' vibrant artistic and cultural scene.

Taking the fair into this new era, Julien Frydman has been appointed Director of Paris Photo. He was head of the renowned photography agency Magnum Photos in Paris since 2006, and has been a consultant of the LUMA Foundation for Le Parc des Ateliers in Arles since January 2011. He takes over from Guillaume Piens who ensured the success of the fair for the last three editions.

The 2011 edition will mark the 15th anniversary of Paris Photo. Artists and their work, dealers, and publishers, will enjoy an exceptional environment to show photography in all its diversity. This year's edition will turn the spotlight on African photography, from Bamako to Cape Town.

As with the previous years, the selection committee, made of eight international galleries, will guarantee the quality of the galleries and works exhibited, offering a unique panorama of nineteenth-century, modern and contemporary photography.

New projects and new services will be launched in 2011 to match the growing success of the fair and welcome even more visitors from the general public, collectors, professionals, French and international institutions.
