These impromptu portraits feature ordinary and eccentric Parisians wearing vintage hand-painted Carnival masks. Fine-art photographer Vee Speers made this series just for fun — with her iPhone — over the course of a few dinner parties with friends.

For people who love photography, Paris is THE place to be in November.
There are literally more exhibitions, events, conferences, lectures, and booksignings than anyone can possible see in one month during the citywide celebration of the photographic image. Here we show a preview of the biennial Month of Photography. We also preview the upcoming exhibitions of the fringe festival, Mois de la Photo OFF, as well as a comprehensive overview of the photography art market and fair Paris Photo.
Lens Culture is pleased to host the 3rd annual Lens Culture FotoFest Paris international portfolio review November 12-14, including a Meet the Artist evening that features emerging photographers from 35 countries — an amazing evening that is free and open to the public, November 13.

Lens Culture is pleased to present a high-resolution slideshow preview of 276 photographs that will be featured at Paris Photo 2012 in November. This is the largest and most important photography art fair in Europe — so in many ways, this is what the international art market looks like right now for photography.
