Photo Independent Paris is Open for Applications

Photo Independent is pleased to announce its launching a Paris edition in 2018.

We are excited to be sharing a venue with fotofever, a gallery-based photo fair — who will be celebrating their 7th edition this year — at the Carrousel du Louvre (at the Louvre Museum). Both fairs will be celebrated alongside Paris Photo in November during what is known as photo week in Paris.

As a photographic art fair, and the leading photo fair worldwide for affordable, contemporary photography, Photo Independent is here to support photographers gain the exposure they are seeking.

Connect with the European Market

Sharing a venue with fotofever, who attracted over 10,000 visitors in 2017, will enhance the exposure for photographers and their ability to connect with collectors and lovers of photography in Europe.

Selection

Our expert Selection Committee will review all applications and carefully select the artists who will exhibit at Photo Independent and have the chance to connect with thousands of visitors, collectors, curators, gallerists, and art buyers.
