Paris Photo at Grand Palais Éphémère

200 galleries and publishers. The event – Paris Photo – draws from the four corners of the world, galleries and publishers, artists, institutions, collectors, curators, key players, and enthusiasts in this ever-evolving ecosystem eager to exchange and make new discoveries in photography.

Rossy de Palma is the Guest of Honor for the 25th edition.
