There is lots of artistic buzz in Paris at the moment. During the month of November 2010, Paris comes alive with four major photography events — including more than 150 individual exhibitions, lectures, slide shows and more. We’ve got links to PDFs and websites to help you plan your itinerary:
The citywide Paris Month of Photography, featuring more than 50 special photography exhibitions, lectures and projections.
The Paris Month of Photography OFF festival, will feature an additional 100+ photography shows and events.
Paris Photo, the world’s largest (and arguably best) fair and marketplace for international contemporary photography, takes place November 18-21. This year, there is a special emphasis on photography for central and eastern Europe, which will be fantastic. See our high-resolution slideshow preview of more than 340 photographs that will be on display at Paris Photo this year.
Lens Culture FotoFest Paris 2010, (November 15-17), the first large-scale formal portfolio review conference in Paris, which will bring together more than 120 international photographers (from 32 countries) and 40 photography experts for 3 days of intense meetings, networking and inspiration.
Although FotoFest Paris is completely sold out, approximately 100 participating photographers will be showing (and selling) their photographs during a 2-hour Open Portfolio Night on Tuesday 16 November, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. This event is open to the public — and free! So, photography lovers and art collectors who want to discover and meet new photographers are invited to attend.
Location: Spéos Paris Institute of Photography, 8 rue Jules Valles, 75011 Paris. Nearest metro: Charonne.
Hope to see you here in Paris in November!
