Grand Palais, Paris
November 10 – November 13, 2011
Avenue Winston Churchill, 75008 Paris

Paris Photo, one of the world’s leading photography fairs, celebrates its 15th anniversary at the Grand Palais — a major step ahead for the renowned international event.

117 galleries from some 23 countries will present the best of 19th century, modern and contemporary photography in the heart of the French capital. To complete this panorama of worldwide photography, a selection of 18 publishers will have a dedicated space in the fair.

Paris Photo will celebrate African photography from Bamako to Cape Town, unveiling the creative wealth of historic and contemporary African artists. These developments put forward the new energy that Paris Photo is displaying by reinventing itself. Four programmes will articulate Paris Photo's new identity: Institutions' recent photography acquisitions, The Platfrom series of special events, the Private Collection from Artur Walther, a focus on the Photography Book and the launch of the Paris Photo - Photo Book Prize.
