This week, the Grand Palais will host the 18th edition of photography's top art fair, Paris Photo.

"The fair turns 18 years old this year, so it's a time of maturity," Paris Photo director Julien Frydman told artnet News. "Paris Photo has played a big role in integrating photography in the history of art, putting it in relation with other artistic disciplines, such as writing, moving image, painting, and performance. This year is going to be really representative of the diversity of approaches and the vitality of artists using the medium."
