A circuit dedicated to women photographers

Paris Photo also continues its commitment to women in photography with Elles x Paris Photo, a program initiated in 2019 in partnership with the French Ministry of Culture and supported by Women In Motion, a Kering program that shines a light on the talent of women artists and their contribution to the history of photography. . Selected artists will benefit from an exhibition on the website , a dedicated space and resource continuously updated with interviews, articles and statistical data on the representation of women photographers.
