Paris Photo, the largest and most prestigious fine art photography art fair in the world, takes place at the Grand Palais in Paris, France every November. This event attracts the best galleries, photographers and collectors from all over the world for four days of a buzzy, vibrant, visually-intense marketplace.
This year, 135 international galleries and 28 book and magazine publishers will be present, and as can be expected, a full range of photographs and photobooks will be offered for sale. Everything is here: from rare vintage 19th century prints, to the greatest hits from photography's early heydays in the 1970s and 80s, and up to the minute with today's superstars and emerging talents.
LensCulture is proud to be a partner with Paris Photo again this year (our ninth year together), so we are especially pleased to present a large selection of preview picks as an appetizer for this year's largest ever event. The previews look especially great on our new full-screen slideshows. So please set aside a little time to luxuriate in this abundance of great old and new photographic work.
Add your favorites to your personal collections here on LensCulture, and share your picks with everyone in our global community.
