Paris Photo 2016


Since 1997, the fair has not ceased to evolve thanks to the projects proposed by the galleries, selected for their excellence, diversity and engagement and the participation of the art book dealers whose publications testify to the inseparable ties that exist between the book and photography.

At the heart of the fair are the main sector galleries and publishers and the PRISMES sector featuring series, large formats and installation; there is additionally a programme rich in content. In the Salon d’Honneur, the Centre Pompidou unveils highlights from their last 10 years of photographic acquisitions and J.P. Morgan presents a selection of photographs from their collection. Additionally, the Platform proposes series of conversations, and under the glass roof of the Grand Palais you will discover Alinka Echeverría, laureate of the BMW Residency as well as the exhibitions of our partners.

And not the least, a new edition of the Paris Photo – Aperture Foundation 2016 PhotoBook Awards and numerous signature sessions during the fair drawing inquisitive crowds for direct exchanges with artists.

This year Paris Photo steps out of the Grand Palais in collaboration with Gare & Connexions for a carte blanche given to Raphaël Dallaporta, and Radio Nova with on-air programming bringing words to images.

Lastly, an exceptional publication, Paris Photo 1997-2016, Parcours, retraces the history of the fair and reassembles nearly 100 contributions from key figures in the field of photography that share their souvenirs of Paris Photo.
