Paris is the city where photography was born and emerged as an art form in its own right. So it is only natural that the world’s most exciting and relevant photography fairs should take place here. If you have any connection to the world of photography there are three events coming up in mid November that you must not miss, and you can reach them all easily from the Hotel de la Herse d'Or.
Three Top Paris Events for Photographers
Paris Photo, Grand Palais
Expect innovative and high level programming at Paris Photo, November 13th to 16th at the Grand Palais. This is the world’s premiere art fair for work presented in the photographic medium, and hosts over 160 galleries. There will be an exhibition gleaned from a renowned private collection, a platform for conversations and debates, a tribute to the role of the photo book and a Recent Acquisitions show drawn from the holdings of international institutions.
Salon de la Photo, Porte de Versailles exhibition centre
The Porte de Versailles exhibition centre is the venue for the Salon de la Photo from November 13th to 17th. The focus here is on cameras and related equipment and all the major brands will be represented from Adobe to Tetenal. There will be technical workshops presented by leading manufacturers, schools and professional groups and an exhibition dedicated to the humanistic photography of Sabine Weiss.
Fotofever Paris, Carrousel du Louvre
The fun and collectible side of photography will feature heavily at Fotofever Paris. The Carrousel du Louvre from November 14th to 16th will be the place where you can see an exhibition exploring the relationship between art and money using photographs on loan from the Belgian collector Galila Barzilai, along with seminars, presentations and more than 60 galleries.
