For the 17th edition Paris Photo 2013 presents a selection of 164 international galleries, publishers and booksellers.
Program & events:
The “Private Collection” exhibit introduces visitors to the pioneering role played by private collectors who, driven by their own passion and perseverance, gather masterpieces and develop new approaches. This year Paris Photo hosts a selection of works from Harald Falckenberg‘s collection showcasing his perspective on the medium of photography. The Falckenberg Collection comprises over 2,000 works of contemporary art which are shown on 6,000 square feet in a former factory building in Hamburg. Since 2011, the Falckenberg Collection is part of Deichtorhallen Hamburg, one of Europe’s leading exhibition centres for contemporary art and photography.

The “Recent Acquisitions” exhibit presents the new photography collections from three international institutions. This year, it will feature the Instituto Moreira Salles from Rio, with Brazilian photography that captures transformations in the urban landscape; the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, offering a set of Arnaud Maggs photographs and a series on photography practices; and the Museum Folkwang from Essen, covering photographic representations of historic events, with a focus on the recent crisis in Egypt.

The “Open Book” exhibit taken from Martin Parr‘s collection will present a set of Protest Photo Books, photography pamphlets covering uprisings from the second half of the 20th century to today. They mainly have been published after WW2 in Japan, Latin America but also in Europe. These books can both be considered as pieces documenting protest movements, and as a form of protest themselves.
