Paris Photo brings together 107 exhibitors from 19 countries. The selection for 2008 has favoured a greater focus on personal exhibitions and thematic projects, presenting the best photographic expressions from the earliest time to the present day. But one of the important aspects of this 12th edition is the invitation of Japan as country of honour: with the work by more than 130 artists on show, Paris Photo offers an exceptional overview of a unique site of practice, from the Meiji era to the most contemporary production.
From November 12th to 16th 2008, Paris Photo will bring together at the Carrousel du
Louvre, 107 exhibitors from 19 countries. With 78% of participants from abroad and
37 newcomers, the selection for 2008 has favoured a greater focus on personal
exhibitions and thematic projects, presenting the best photographic expressions from
the earliest time to the present day. But one of the important aspects of this 12th
edition is the invitation of Japan as country of honour: with the work by more than
130 artists on show, Paris Photo will offer an exceptional overview of a unique site
of practice, from the Meiji era to the most contemporary production. To date, no
exhibition in Europe has broadly brought together such a number of Japan's modern,
contemporary and emerging photographers.
"Spotlight on Japan" is curated by Mariko Takeuchi, independent curator and photography critic.
