If Art Basel can be in Miami then logic concludes Paris Photo can be in Los Angeles, April 26-28th. A great way to see an excellent and large cross section of contemporary and vintage photography. Don’t go here and expect them to hang out and look at your prints. The galleries in this premier exhibition are there for one reason only: To sell you lots of very expensive photographs by the best shooters in the world… This is one of the biggest shows when in Europe. It will be interesting to see how it works in LA.
Paris Photo was created in 1996 and is the most prestigious art fair dedicated to historical and contemporary photography. This fair takes place annually at the Grand Palais in Paris mid-November and at the Paramount Pictures Studios in Los Angeles at the end of April. Over the past 16 years, Paris Photo has become a significant event for collectors of contemporary and modern art, photography professionals, artists, as well as for an ever-growing audience of art appreciators. Each edition is unique and brings together a distinguished selection of exhibitors with diverse collections focused on the photographic medium. A public program is also an important component of the fairs which is built around cultural events involving artists, art world professionals, collectors, and cultural institutions.Enriched by the unique cultural environment of these two cities, Paris Photo offers its visitors an unsurpassed experience in two historic locations which bring together all the different trends in photography.via the web site
