The selection presents a rich and diverse panorama for Paris Photo’s ever-growing audiences.

PARIS.- For its 22nd edition, Paris Photo, the premier international art fair for photography, announces 180 exhibitors for the main gallery sector and the book sector – 149 galleries and 31 art book dealers representing 28 countries, reunited at the Grand Palais from 8 - 11 November 2018.

The selection presents a rich and diverse panorama for Paris Photo’s ever-growing audiences (64,542 in 2017): collectors, experts, museum directors and committees, curators, artists, professionals, amateurs of art and photography, come from the world over to discover the best of photographic creation from the 19th century to today.

Paris Photo welcomes 25 new galleries (compared to 2017) including 17 first-ever participations, testifying to the vivacity of the market and the increasing interest for image-based art. Among this year’s newcomers, Marc Selwyn (Los Angeles) with conceptual photography from California; Enrico Astuni (Bologna) presenting works by David Medalla and Steven Pipin; In Situ (Paris) with the Canadian artist Lynne Cohen; Anahava (Helsinki) with a focus on the Finish art scene; Art+Text (Budapest) showcasing Hungarian Neo-avant-garde photography; Fisheye (Paris) with a virtual reality project; Catinca Tabaracu (New York/Harare); L’Agence (Paris); and Galerie 127 (Marrakech).

Returning galleries include Rosegallery (Santa Monica), Cécile Fakhoury (Abidjan), Feldbush Wiesner Rudolph (Berlin), Keith de Lellis (New York), Patricia Conde (Mexico) and after a long absence Priska Pasquer (Cologne) and Goodman (Johannesburg/Cape Town), the latter with a series of vintage photographs from the recently deceased David Goldblatt.

In the nave, 27 solo shows are presented among which South African Santu Mofokeng (Carlier Gebauer, Berlin); Steve Kahn with an ensemble of conceptual works (Casemore Kirkeby, San Francisco); Michel Journiac with the iconic series 24 Hours in the Life of an Ordinary Woman (Christophe Gaillard, Paris). Ari Marcopoulos presents American subculture (Frank Elbaz, Paris/Dallas); Mao Ishikawa the emergence of female photographers in 1960s Japan (NAP, Tokyo); the American feminist artist Joan Lyons, until now little presented in Europe (Steven Kasher New York); vintage works by Ralph Gibson (Paci, Brescia/Porto Cervo); landscapes by Lynn Davis (Karsten Greve, Paris/Cologne); and projects by Axel Hütte (Nikolaus Ruzicka, Salzburg), Barbara Probst (Kuckei + Kuckei, Berlin) and Erez Israeli (Crone, Vienne).

In the Salon d’Honneur at the Grand Palais, 14 projects are presented for PRISMES; sector dedicated to large formats, series and installation works, exploring the photographic medium in its most diverse forms and practices.

The Film sector, inaugurated in 2017 and presented in mk2 Grand Palais, highlights the relationship between still and moving images with a selection of films and artist videos by Pascale Cassagnau (CNAP) and Matthieu Orléan (La Cinémathèque française).

New for 2018, Paris Photo inaugurates the Curiosa sector, curated this year by independent curator and writer Martha Kirszenbaum (recently named curator of the French Pavilion at the 2019 Venice Biennale). For this first edition a selection of erotic images will be unveiled, challenging our gaze on the fantasized and fetishicized body, and tackling relations of power, domination and gender issues.

This year the Fair celebrates women photographers with Elles x Paris Photo, a project headed by Fannie Escoulen (independent curator) and supported by the French Ministry of Culture, leading visitors on a parcours through the stands of Paris Photo and continuing on throughout the capital.
