The annual Paris Photo Fair promises to treat photography lovers with works of varying price ranges, styles and eras from over 1,000 photographers.
The New York Times reports that this annual fair has a new theme every year, and 2010 highlights artists from central European countries like Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia. The styles range from photojournalism to fine art and fashion, according to the news source. The time periods showcased include everything from the 19th century to the present day.
Such a breadth of subjects and themes may be intimidating to visitors, but the fair accommodates a certain inexperience by providing lectures, videos and exhibits to give visitors a quick background on various time periods and the styles associated with them. Visitors can also obtain context for the works by talking to some of the photographers in person.
"It gives us a very human quality. You can learn as much from one conversation as from countless articles," the fair's manager said.This year's Photo Fair will start November 18 and end November 21. Admission will be priced at about 18 euros.
