ParisPhoto, Fun.

Asako Narahashi, Kotan, 2002.

Showing for the first time at The Grand Palais, it brings 117 galleries from around the globe to show off their prized photographs, the very best of 19th Century, modern and contemporary snaps. 

Thrilled to meet Paolo Roversi and William Klein who were signing books but gutted to have missed William Eccleston the day before, oh well. 

Some of the stand out artists that did it for me were Zofia Rydet's black and whites, Asako Narahashi's sea views and Yang Yongliang's Chinese forests.

The most fun and frivolous gallery space belonged to Galerie Sultana who had its area reserved for just one photographer, Walter Pfeiffer, my hero. The works on show were a mixture of his old and new photographs, my favourite being the giant print of a healthy handsome boy blowing up a big red balloon. Tres magnifique Walter.
