Paris Photo is the world's largest art fair dedicated to photography and annually attracts thousands of artists, professionals, collectors and enthusiasts to Paris' Grand Palais-this year from 9 to 12 November. Over 180 galleries and publishers present a comprehensive historical panorama of photography, from vintage prints to the latest contemporary works and everything in between. But how are we to best navigate this almost overwhelming photographic bounty? Paris Photo by Karl Lagerfeld provides the answer by presenting Karl Lagerfeld's personal selection of his favorite photos from the thousands on show at this year's fair. We are thus able to "visit" Paris Photo as if in Lagerfeld's own company, and enjoy his curated perspective that is shaped by his decades of experience as a photographer, photobook publisher and book dealer. Lagerfeld's chosen photos will also be indicated at Paris Photo itself, allowing us to wander the fair through Lagerfeld's eyes.
