KARL LAGERFELD, GUEST OF HONOUR AT PARIS PHOTO
GRAND PALAIS

9-12 NOVEMBER 2017

PARIS PHOTO, the world’s largest art fair dedicated to the photographic medium, presents its 21st edition at the historic Grand Palais in Paris, from 9 to 12 November 2017.

Reuniting 180 international galleries and art book dealers, PARIS PHOTO offers a rich and varied panorama, attracting each year 60,000 visitors – artists, collectors, professionals, renowned cultural institutions, experts and art enthusiasts- who come from all over the world to discover the very best in photography, from vintage works and modern masters to the latest contemporary creations.

This year, PARIS PHOTO proposes to visit the fair through the eyes of a personality of exception, Karl Lagerfeld. Visionary and cultural icon, Karl Lagerfeld has always been fascinated by the power of images and the evocative effect they produce.

“Today photography is part of my life. It completes the circle between my artistic and professional restlessness.” – Karl Lagerfeld

By selecting his personal favourites, Karl Lagerfeld will create a journey throughout the fair and the thousands of artworks on view, as well as a special edition book published by Steidl. An original way for the public to contemplate the artworks exhibited by the gallerists and curators, while discovering the aesthetic universe of Karl Lagerfeld.

Karl Lagerfeld, fashion designer, publisher and book dealer, began working as a photographer in 1987. Lagerfeld has since received the Cultural Prize from the German Photographic Society and the ICP Trustee Award from the International Centre of Photography.

Paris Photo thanks its official partners, BMW and J.P. Morgan.
