136 galleries and 28 photobook specialists are taking part in the 17th edition of Paris Photo, one of the world’s leading photography fairs. 28 new galleries join the fair this year. The Paris edition of the fair comes after the first American edition of Paris Photo which took place earlier this year at the Paramount studios in Los Angeles.

Highlights of the show include the "Private Collection" exhibit, which introduces visitors to the pioneering role played by private collectors who, driven by their own passion and perseverance, gather masterpieces and develop new approaches. Paris Photo is hosting a selection of works from Harald Falckenberg's collection showcasing his perspective on the medium of photography.

The "Recent Acquisitions" exhibit presents the new photography collections from three international institutions. This year, it features the Instituto Moreira Salles from Rio, with Brazilian photography that captures transformations in the urban landscape; the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, offering a set of Arnaud Maggs photographs and a series on photography practices; and the Museum Folkwang from Essen, covering photographic representations of historic events, with a focus on the recent crisis in Egypt.

Echoing that theme, the "Open Book" exhibit taken from Martin Parr's collection presents a set of Protest Photo Books, photography pamphlets covering uprisings from the second half of the 20th century to today.
