Book your tickets when you come to the Hotel du Danube.
Paris Photo: the basics
Paris Photo takes place this year in the wood and glass Grand Palais Éphémère, the temporary structure standing in for the Grand Palais and located at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. In this prestigious setting, more than thirty publishers and nearly 150 galleries from all over the world offer their finest works. Many conversations on two different stages allow you to listen to and interact with creatives and specialists. In addition, many thematic routes and spaces have been set up, such as the one dedicated to Rossy de Palma, and another designed by the winners of the BMW Art Makers programme.
The latest trends in contemporary photography
Thanks to the diversity of galleries, artists and publishers represented, Paris Photo offers a very broad and inclusive vision of the world of contemporary photography. In the aisles of the Grand Palais Éphémère, you can move between Switzerland and the United States, Canada and India, Lebanon and Iran. The prizes awarded during the fair also symbolise this ethos of openness. For example, the Prix Dahinden Une Autre Empreinte rewards photography that is more eco-responsible, and which raises awareness of environmental issues. You will even get a glimpse of the work of potential stars of the future thanks to the cartes blanches offered to students...
