PARIS.- This 15th edition was a landmark in the evolution of Paris Photo with a move to the Grand Palais, offering the artists and their works, the galleries, the editors and the public an exceptional setting and thereby strengthening the position of the fair on an international level and the Parisian cultural scene.

Under the leadership of Julien Frydman, named Director of the fair in February 2011, Paris Photo was centred on new initiatives for the cultural programme: the exhibition « Recent Acquisitions » by three international museums, the « Private Collection » exhibition, the Paris Photobook Prize, and the Platform of live events.

Which other city in the world prides itself on having two such important international fairs?» Thomas Zander met important collectors from the United States (San Francisco, New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston…) as well as the rest of the world and made sales ranging from €28,000 to €120,000.

Pace/MacGill Gallery – New York « We are very happy, we met several new collectors, and achieved commercial success with a lot of sales, in particular a triptych by Irving Penn which sold for $180,000, many largescale photographs by Paul Graham, and a very beautiful Robert Misrach. »

Camera Work – Berlin « We are very happy; we made good contacts, notably with art collectors. We sold the portrait of Maiakovski by Rodchenko for €450,000»

Paris Photo would like to thank its partners for their active support and their engagement with photography, who contributed to the success of the fair:

The official partners: Giorgio Armani and J.P. Morgan Associated partners: Aperture Foundation, Armani Casa, BMW, DLA Piper UK LLP, Fondation LUMA, L’Institut français and Bamako Encounters, Leica Camera, SFR Jeunes Talents and Vitra Media partners: Artnet.fr, France Culture, Gares & Connexions, Le Figaro Magazine, Paris Première, RATP and Télérama.
