Prepare yourself for one of the biggest photography events of the year in Paris – the Paris Photo 2011. This expo is a dream factory for analogue photography aficionados out there.
November is the month dedicated to Photography in Paris. Photography exhibits can be found all over the city, from museums to galleries to special exhibits. One of the most amazing events, if not the greatest, that will take place is the Paris Photo 2011. This year, it will be held from the 10th to the 13th of November at the Grand Palais.
This year’s selection of 135 galleries and publishers from France and all over the world (23 different countries) will allow the visitors to get an exceptional overview of 19th century photography.
The place of honor will be attributed to African photography: from Bamako to Cape Town. The program, already available on the Official Paris Photo website), unveils works of many artists.
Les “Rencontres de Bamako” will offer a glimpse of the new generation of African artists, spotted at the Biennial of African Photography.
The “Private Collection from Artur Walther” will be showing a generation of African artists in an exhibition space set out in the midst of the exhibition.
The African theme will be present throughout the exhibition. Publishers have also become involved in the diffusion of African Art. Many galleries that support African Art in general and photography in particular, will this year be presenting their most emblematic works.
Dear analogue friends, this event is definitely worthwhile to visit if you’re planning a trip to Paris in November. You still have two months left to plan it. Hope to see you there!
