The Director of Paris Photo Steps Down

Julien Frydman, head of the French and Los Angeles-based art fair Paris Photo for the past four years, has announced that he will leave his post as director in late January 2015. The announcement comes just a month after the 18th edition of Paris Photo, and five months before the third edition of Paris Photo Los Angeles.

“The reason why I am leaving at this particular moment is because I've had a job offer," Frydman told artnet News over the phone on Tuesday morning. "Paris Photo hosts a fair every six months, so it was always going to catch me in between fairs."

Paris Photo Opens this Week at the Grand Palais

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."
