FotoFest Paris 2013:
128 Photographers/40 Countries

The 2013 LensCulture FotoFest Paris marks the 4th annual international portfolio review in Paris. We were thrilled and honored to welcome 128 photographers and 47 photography experts who traveled from 40 countries to participate in the three-day event.

We believe that direct, face-to-face meetings between photographers and industry professionals are some of the most effective means for photographers to expand the recognition and reach of their work, and to boost their careers in international markets. Likewise, the professionals (art gallery owners, magazine photo editors, book publishers, museum and festival curators, agency directors, and others) are eager to discover new talents and to see the latest work of established artists and photographers.

The one-to-one meetings are short, intense, and personal. The hope is that when there is a good fit, a serious business relationship will begin, and continue into the long term.

In the slideshow above, we present one image from each photographer. Below, you can find the photographers listed alphabetically by name. Clicking on their name will give you access to their websites if you are especially interested in their work.
