“This inaugural edition of Paris Photo New York and its exhibitors reflect the continuing history of the fair as a hub for photographic exchange and exploration”, according to Paris Photo Director Florence Bourgeois and Artistic Director Christoph Wiesner. “Within the last few months alone, we have seen major New York photography institutions open or reimagine their collections, highlighting a rediscovery of the medium, as technologies and accessibility advance. This is a pivotal moment for the field and we’re excited to be a part of it.”

At the Main Sector of the fair, encounter artworks by the most acclaimed masters in the field, including Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Imogen Cunningham (Edwynn Houk, New York), Dora Maar and Germaine Krull (Gilles Peyroulet & Cie, Paris), and Gustave Le Gray and Charles Nègre (Hans P. Kraus, New York). New York documentary photography will be present through the hand colored photographs and street scenes of Ming Smith (Jenkins Johnson, San Francisco), the first Black female photographer acquired by the Museum of Modern Art; early works by Ari Marcopoulos at Galerie Frank Elbaz, Paris; Ellsworth Kelly’s compositional photographs (Matthew Marks, New York/Los Angeles); and Roy DeCarava’s thoughtful depiction of the Harlem Renaissance (Richard Moore, Oakland).

In keeping with the fair’s international scope, Paris Photo New York will feature Latin American photography presented at Throckmorton, New York, Utopica, Sao Paulo, Toluca, Paris, Rolf Art, Buenos Aires, Henrique Faria, New York and Rocio Santa Cruz, Barcelona, as well as a panorama of Japanese photography thanks to MEM Tokyo, PGI Tokyo, Michael Hoppen, London, Taro Nasu, Tokyo and Miyako Yoshinaga, New York, and South African photography explored by Stevenson, Cape Town, with Zanele Muholi, Pieter Hugo and Robin Rhode.

Visitors will delve deeper into the work of one artist with 15 solo shows in the main sector, featuring artists such as Gregory Halpern, whose work explores power and traditional masculine values in American society (Huxley- Parlour, London), and Joel Sternfeld with his legendary American Prospects series (Xippas, Paris). Discover new works by Dutch photographer Bastiaan Woudt (Kahmann, Amsterdam) and Brazilian artist Mario Cravo Neto’s iconic Laroyé street photography series (Paci, Brescia). Find rare vintage prints by Witkin (Baudoin Lebon, Paris/Etherton Tucson), Eliot Porter (Scheinbaum & Russek, Santa Fe), and chronicles from the 60’s and 70’s by Bob Gruen (The Music Photo Gallery, Buenos Aires). And experience an immersive project presented by Sofia Valiente in an actual 41-foot freight boat installed at the show (Daniel Blau, Berlin), a tribute to the vibrant pioneer spirit of the Florida Everglades.

The [RE]Emergence sector, guest curated by writer and art critic, Antwaun Sargent, will bring together both exciting new voices such as Chloe Rosser (Elizabeth Housten, New York), Curran Hatleberg (Higher Pictures, New York) and Patrick Waterhouse (The Ravestijn Gallery, Amsterdam) whose images challenge commonly held assumptions about identity and landscape. The sector will also feature the photography of Peter Funch (V1 Copenhagen) and Robby Miller (Annet Gelink, Amsterdam)—established image-makers, who are now emerging as vital links to a rich past that have shaped contemporary photography. The sector's dynamic talks program that will include the emerging photographer and filmmaker Tyler Mitchell will foreground how photography has played roles in rethinking other mediums such as video, painting and debates surrounding ever-shifting notions of desire and representation. 

Building on the history of New York as one of the epicenters of the photographic industry, Paris Photo New York’s programming will draw from the city’s thriving arts scene and rich network of museums and organizations. The Paris Photo New York Conversation program will be curated by Aperture Foundation—a not-for-profit foundation connecting the photo community and its audiences—, AIPAD, and guest curator Antwaun Sargent. Additional programming including talks, exhibitions, events and artists book signing sessions will be announced early March.
