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. 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.

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