PARIS.- Paris Photo is continuing the new program components it launched in 2011, during its first event at the Grand Palais. These include the "Private Collection" exhibit, the exhibit featuring "Recent Acquisitions" from major institutions, the "Open Book" exhibit, the Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards, and the "Paris Photo Platform".

PRIVATE COLLECTION EXHIBITION
The "Private Collection" exhibit introduces visitors to the pioneering role played by private collectors who, driven by their own passion and perseverance, gather masterpieces and develop new approaches. This year Paris Photo will be hosting a selection of works from Harald Falckenberg's collection showcasing his perspective on the medium of photography. With works by such artists as Jerry Berndt, Victor Burgin, Walker Evans, Lee Friedlander, Martin Parr, John Baldessari, Phil Collins, Ray Johnson, Astrid Klein, Urs Lüthi, Albert Oehlen, Sigmar Polke, Richard Prince and Gerhard Rühm.

RECENT ACQUISITIONS
The "Recent Acquisitions" exhibit presents the new photography collections from three international institutions. This year, it will feature the Instituto Moreira Salles from Rio, with Brazilian photography that captures transformations in the urban landscape; the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, offering a set of Arnaud Maggs photographs and a series on photography practices; and the Museum Folkwang from Essen, covering photographic representations of historic events, with a focus on the recent crisis in Egypt.

OPEN BOOK
Echoing that theme, the "Open Book" exhibit taken from Martin Parr's collection will present a set of Protest Photo Books, photography pamphlets covering uprisings from the second half of the 20th century to today.

Paris Photo – Aperture Foundation Photobook Awards
To recognize the vitality of the photography book sector, the Paris Photo Book Awards will be given once again to winners from a selection of 30 books published over the past 15 years.

PLATFORM
Nicolas Bourriaud, Director of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, has invited participants in the “Platform” to give talks, interviews, debates, and performances.
