Photography is going to be at the centre of most art-related conversations in the coming days and I will yet again find myself on the Eurostar. Paris Photo is opening its 17th edition at the Grand Palais, where over 160 international exhibitors promise to show the best that the medium has to offer since its invention.
The organizers have prepared an eventful program that promises to keep everyone busy. Some galleries have decided to dedicate their stand to a solo presentation. In this respect, I would be curious to discover the installation of works by Juergen Teller presented by the Parisian gallery Suzanne Tarasieve. I was indeed quite fascinated with his portraits of Dame Vivenne Westwood when I saw them at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in London. They managed to convey an incredible sense of ease (against all odds).
I am also eager to discover the exhibition that aims at shining a light on the the pioneering role of the private collector in general with the guest of honour this year being Harald Falckenberg.
Chances are that you also run into me at Yossi Milo Gallery stand (D20).
