    Paris Photo 2004

    "For this 8th fair - more international and contemporary than ever - Paris Photo is offering a view across the history of photography through rare 19th-century pieces, vintage shots by great modern masters, and new forms of expression by contemporary photographers.

    The freshness of Switzerland's young art scene highlights the strong presence of contemporary photography at this year's fair, with eight Swiss German and Swiss French galleries gathered together in the Statement sector, and a rich programme of videos and films presented in the Project room. This double tribute to Switzerland is the fruit of a close collaboration with the Centre Culturel Suisse in Paris and has been made possible thanks to the support provided by Présence Suisse. Honouring Switzerland presupposes referring to its abundance of its museums and collections. Paris Photo is therefore delighted to welcome the internationally renowned Swiss institution, Fotomuseum Winterthur, for a central exhibition titled Cold Play presenting a selection of twenty-nine major contemporary works shown for the first time outside the confines of the museum."
