Paris Photo 2017


The 21st edition of Paris Photo, the leading international art fair dedicated to the photographic medium, was held in the heart of Paris, in the majestic Grand Palais.

Two centuries of photography were presented at the Fair thanks to 189 galleries and art book dealers, selected for the pertinence of their projects and their artistic diversity. For the 3rd consecutive year, the prestigious Salon d’Honneur provided a monumental backdrop for the PRISMES sector, where renowned international galleries offer in a curated space, large-format, series, and installation works, that explore the medium from new angles.

This year, we proudly welcomed Karl Lagerfeld as Paris Photo’s Guest of Honour and the private collection of Helga de Alvear, renowned gallerist and avidcollector, for an exhibition curated by Marta Gili, Director of the Jeu dePaume, presented with the support of J.P. Morgan.

We also revealed an innovative and diverse programme within the Grand Palais – including talks, book signings, photobook awards, films and videos, and a carte blanche for emerging artists – and the exhibitions of our partners.

A must-see event for photography, Paris Photo proposes the largest and most qualitative selection of photography-based art and programming.
