Photography lovers cannot miss the Paris Photo fairs – a great feast of photography that has been celebrated for 20 years already.
This year, from 10th to 13th November, thousands of visitors filled the Grand Palais in Paris. It was a meeting of dealers, collectors, curators, artists and art aficionados who admired the works of recognized masters and contemporary talents and saw presentations of the world's top galleries and publishers. The fair included 153 galleries and a special PRISMES exhibition dedicated to large formats and series works in the Salon d’Honneur.

To celebrate the 20th edition, an exclusive publication was released highlighting the key moments in the history of the fair. Another interesting event was an experimental forum on topics related to the business, e.g. “How to collect photography?” The 20th edition of Paris Photo, as always, provided a unique opportunity to discover photography in all its forms.
