Paris Photo

November 9-12

In 1997 the city of Paris offered a unique event dedicated to photography. From then on, Paris Photo has been considered the world’s largest international art fair dedicated to the photographic medium. On November 9-12, 2017, people interested can attend the historic Grand Palais to enjoy the 21st edition of Paris Photo, dedicated this time to Karl Lagerfeld.

Held annually, Paris Photo is the ideal place for collectors, professionals, artists, and enthusiasts who want to get acquainted with the diversity of the artworks that mirror the  worldwide trends through exhibitions, awards, book signing sessions, special events, and talks and discussions with artists, curators, critics, and historians.

This year, Paris Photo proposes to visit the fair through the eyes of Karl Lagerfeld, by selecting his personal favorites, “An original way for the public to contemplate the artworks exhibited by the gallerists and curators, while discovering the aesthetic universe of Karl Lagerfeld”, as stated in the press release of the event.

Karl Lagerfeld, fashion designer, publisher and book dealer, began working as a photographer in 1987. Lagerfeld has since received the Cultural Prize from the German Photographic Society and the ICP Trustee Award from the International Centre of Photography.

MSPF is an international photography festival showcasing the best of contemporary street and documentary photography. Organized along with the HistoryMiami Museum, the goal of the Festival is to establish a global platform for learning through exhibitions, workshops, lectures and other events.

“There is no set-up involved, no manipulation of the scene and very little or no post-processing of the image. This realism has provided an accurate and insightful record of street culture throughout the world. With images portraying everything from the ugly, gritty side of life to more humorous situations, they are moments that unless captured, might otherwise go unnoticed”, details its Web page about the event, that reaches its sixth year.
The programming, that includes workshops, exhibits and portfolio reviews, will take place at the HistoryMiami Museum.

Workshops have limited capacity, the interested please review the requirements in order to register. Costa Manos, Harvey Stein, Maggie Steber and Veneet Vohra, are some of the instructors that will be sharing their visions on street photography.
