After 16 years of existence, Paris Photo has become an essential meeting place, both on a French and international level.
Nevertheless, as the network of cultural centers and galleries tends to make Los Angeles an essential meeting place for collectors who don’t come to Paris, Jean-Daniel Compain, General Director of the Culture and Entertainment branch of Reed Expositions, and Julien Frydman, Director of Paris-Photo, decided to create Paris Photo L.A. The first edition will take place from April 24-28, 2013 at the Paramount studios, also celebrating their 100th anniversary.
It will present a selection of 80 French and international galleries whose definitive program will be announced during the next edition of Paris Photo, scheduled to take place from November 15-18, 2012, at the Grand Palais.
Julien Frydman adds that Paris Photo L.A. “is determined to represent all types of photography, including the most avant-garde, the program will be defined in relation to the cultural activity of the city and of its principle actors'' (private collections, cultural institutions).
