The 9 Stands to visit at Paris Photo 2017

We travelled to Paris via Eurostar in our own special carriage. We recieved presentations from four great photographers two established Mark Neville and Dougie Wallace and two emerging George Selley and William Lakin both winners of Carte Blanche, a platform for emerging photography launched by Paris Photo this year.

And then we got to hang out all day at the Grand Palais and check out all the photography. We thought it might be hard to limit ourselves to 9 galleries but the funny thing about FAD is we always forget how choosy we are and it’s kinda hard to find interesting photography especially now we all see so many images all the time. Anyway here’s our top 9 booths/ stands to visit at Paris Photo 2017.

1 A28 Yancey Richardson

Zanele Muholi at Cassilhaus, North Carolina 2016 gelatin silver print

This gallery was doing so much business we loved the work by Zanele Muholi and Paul Mpagi Sepuya. However if you want to buy anything I’m afraid you are probably already to late. And the work grappled with all the most important issues of today on gender, discrimination etc
