Paris, The Louvre, The Best Photographic Sale/Exhibit in the World…yeah, that works.

Paris-Photo 2007.
This is no one day affair.
The caliber of work in this fair is world class and breathtaking,with a range of images to entice any palette to purchase. This is the creme de la creme. OK, I really don’t speak much French. So lets take a spin around a couple of pieces of the work:

Nan Goldin
Bea with teacup, Boston, 1972
Yvon Lambert

Cui Xiuwen
Angel n.6, 2006
Marella Gallery Milan – Beijing

Noriko Yamaguchi
Keitai Girl no.4, digital print, 85.6x120cm

Helen Levitt
New York, c. 1940
Laurence Miller Gallery

Ok, that was just .0000001 %.

Sure, the day started pretty simple.A bit cool, and a trip to the Pompidou, where the transit strike closed the photo exhibit (Don’t ask!).

But the huge flower pot outside, looked to be filled with something warm.
No such luck.
Felt like in the cartoons when 2 guys are stuck on a desert Island and one looks at the other and thinks/sees him as food.Nevermind.



Back to Paris-Photo


A photograph projected onto continuously pumped steam/smoke


Crazy crowds. They respect photography in a big way in Paris. And come out to support it.


Looking, studying, photographing to study later.


Albert Watson on his first trip to the event.


Bruce Davidson was another master on hand.

And when you feet just can’t take another lap, a soothing red light district to take a break.


Yes, part of the continuing lunch series.

PLUS…In Paris at the same time: Steichen Exhibit, Helen Leavitt, Rodin and Photography, Towards Photo Reportage exhibit.Plus en plus.

I love Paris in November.

(yes, more in depth commentary coming but its’ late and must get ready for tomorrows events.)
