KARL LAGERFELD, GUEST OF HONOUR AT PARIS PHOTO 2017
PARIS PHOTO presents its 21st edition at the historic Grand Palais in Paris, from 9 to 12 November 2017. This year, discover the fair through the eyes of a personality of exception, Paris Photo’s guest of honour, Karl Lagerfeld.
"Today photography is part of my life. It completes the circle between my artistic and professional restlessness." - Karl Lagerfeld
Through a selection of personal favourites from among the thousands of artworks on show and a special edition book published by Steidl, Karl Lagerfeld shares his vision of the fair. A unique way to contemplate the gallery and curators propositions while gaining insight into the aesthetic universe of a cultural icon. Karl Lagerfeld, fashion designer, publisher and book dealer, began working as a photographer in 1987. Lagerfeld has since received the Cultural Prize from the German Photographic Society and the ICP Trustee Award from the International Centre of Photography.
