Paris Photo, the international art fair for photography, welcomes guest of honor, actress and multidisciplinary artist, Rossy de Palma for its 25th anniversary edition in Paris, November 10–13 at the Grand Palais Ephémère. Discover the most important selection of exceptional photographic art and published works in Paris and Online Viewing Rooms—by Artlogic, from 184 leading galeries and art book dealers from 31 countries worldwide featuring 24 solo shows and 14 duo shows.

The Curiosa sector, curated this year by Holly Roussell (Curator, UCCA, Beijing), brings to the foreground new trends in contemporary photographic practice, highlighting interdisciplinarity in image-based art practices as well as photographic explorations in and beyond traditional genres of the medium. The section presents three capsules: experimental and conceptual approaches to image construction, new (self) portraits focusing on personal history and intersecting identities, and current practices in landscape photography. 17 emerging artists from twelve countries are spotlighted for this edition, some of whom exhibit in France for the first time, such as Elliot & Erick Jiménez (SPINELLO Miami), and Pao Houa Her (BOCKLEY Minneapolis).

See the 2022 exhibitor list.

Public programming, both on-site, online and throughout Paris, is an essential component of the fair and includes exhibitions, talks, awards, book signings, podcasts, curated fair selections and more.
