Paris Photo 2012 Review

21 November 2012

Paris Photo, the world's largest and most prestigious photography fair, has just celebrated its 16th year under the spectacular glass and iron-domed ceiling of the Grand Palais. 

A gathering of thousands of artists, photographers, gallery owners, collectors,museum curators and publishers met along with a wider audience of art appreciators to appraise and purchase some of the most interesting, contemporary and historical photography from around the world.

Steve Macleod, Metro's Creative Director attended, as he does every year and despite his initial reservations about  finding anything stimulating and fresh, actually left the fair with renewed inspiration. He comments: 
"In recent years the tendency to roll out the same old familiar works in the hope of shifting units, is creatively and professionally depressing.

"This year after some determination to navigate the ever expanding fair at the Grand Palais, I found some real gems.  Top picks for me were Yamamoto at Yancey Richardson Gallery; Torben Eskerod at Peter Lav Gallery and Nina Korhonen at Galerie Odile Ouizeman. I was also delighted to see many galleries displaying our craftmanship with works from Darren Almond; Garry Fabian-Miller; Dan Holdsworth and others. Purdy Hicks in particular had a strong solo representation of Susan Derges which was beautiful.
"I had a long discussion with Bruno Barbey and Ben Burdett (over a longerdinner) about the merits of contributing galleries. It was great to discuss presentation with our friends at John Jones Framing and the chance at last to hook up with Peter Fraser and Jem Southam.

I have come away with a renewed vigour; inspired that here at Metro Imaging we are collaborating at a level that recognises our high level of professional creativity."
