    Paris Photo 2011


    "Since its origins, photography has widened its field of vision, relentlessly creating a dialog between the artistic forms with which it interacts and the "reality'' that it perceives. The arrival of Paris Photo at the Grand Palais at last offers this perpetual movement its full scope and enables it to present all the wealth and vitality of historical and contemporary photographic creation in what really is an exceptional environment.

    Paris Photo gives pride of place to African photography from Bamako to Cape Town and proposes a complete panorama of this scene.

    The exhibition ''Recent Acquisitions" is to present the recent photographic acquisitions of three international institutions (this year, the Tate from London, the New York International Center of Photography and the musée de l'Elysée from Lausanne).

    L’exposition Collection privée propose une découverte du rôle pionner des collectionneurs privés. […] Cette initiative s’accompagne d’une exposition dédiée à un livre culte de l’histoire de la photographie, Love on the Left Bank (1956) d’Ed van der Elsken.

    The exhibition "Private Collection" will propose a realization of the pioneering role of the private collector. Finally, so as to persuade us of the creativity and the formidable boom in books on photography, as well as an exhibition devoted to a cult book on the l1istory of the photograph, Love on the Left Bank {1956) by Ed van der Elsken.

    This panorama would not have been complete, however, without the novel initiative of a platform of reflection and dialog. More than fifty speakers will participate in interviews, round tables and performances to take place during Paris Photo."
