IMAGE 3.0 – CENTRE NATIONAL DES ARTS PLASTIQUES (CNAP)
Paris Photo presents a selection of works from the national photographic commission IMAGE 3.0, initiated by the Centre national des arts plastiques in partnership with the Jeu de Paume. At the crossroads of art and science, the IMAGE 3.0 exhibition brings together the most recent digital artistic practices in the field of photography and image. The Centre national des arts plastiques is committed to supporting the actors in the field of photography alongside Paris Photo. As a public institution of the French Ministry of Culture, CNAP has an active policy of supporting photographers, artists and professionals in the field through its creative support programs such as the one dedicated to contemporary documentary photography. It also enriches its collection through acquisitions and commissions, thus participating directly in the economy of this sector. Finally, it contributes, through loans and deposits of works or through the programming of exhibitions, to the dissemination and promotion of contemporary photography.

THE ATELIER DE RESTAURATION ET DE CONSERVATION DES PHOTOGRAPHIES DE LA VILLE DE PARIS (ARCP)
For the second year in a row, the City of Paris will be present at Paris Photo with an educational stand that will present the major actions of its photographic conservation-restoration service (ARCP), with a focus in 2022 on the specific alterations of photographs. The ARCP preserves and restores the photographic heritage of the City of Paris, which holds more than 16 million photographs in museums, specialized libraries and archives. Members of the ARCP team will be available on the stand to share their particular know-how and offer workshops for professionals and families alike (identification of photographic processes, diagnosis of the state of conservation of photographs, etc.). Unpublished photographs from the remarkable collections of the libraries and museums of the City of Paris will also be exhibited, demonstrating the material fragility of this medium and the need for these expertises to ensure their durability.

ARASH HANAEI & MORAD MONTAZAMI – SUBURBAN HANTOLOGY – BMW ART MAKERS
The installation Suburban Hauntology, between still images, video, 3D design and dematerialized images, explores complex spaces like the Metaverse, through the utopian architecture of the 1970s. The internet finds in the suburban a speculative double, the distorting mirror of its own standardized landscapes; the suburban finds in the internet a time machine, the unexpected extension of its vanished utopias.

CLIFFORD CHANCE
First time partner of Paris Photo, Clifford Chance has been developing a program of support and commitment to sponsorship of the arts. Across its different offices, the Firm promotes cultural initiatives which allow Clifford Chance to support both up-and-coming and celebrated international artists.

MATTHIEU GAFSOU – THIS CONSTANT BURNING OF THE AIR – WINNER OF THE 4TH EDITION OF THE MAISON RUINART PRIZE – MAISON RUINART
Maison Ruinart presents, in a dedicated exhibition space, the photographer Matthieu Gafsou, winner of the fourth edition of the Maison Ruinart Prize. This prize, awarded by the Maison with the support of Picto Foundation, recognizes an photographer selected in Paris Photo's Curiosa section. Following his residency in Champagne this summer, Matthieu Gafsou produced the seriesThis Constant Burning of the Air. His inspiration was drawn from nature and the people gravitating around the Maison Ruinart, to create a series of contrasting and mysterious images. With an exacerbated sensitivity, he subtly evokes a contemporary concern, the environment and biodiversity.

LEIGH JOHNSON – CHLOE CURATES
To look through Leigh Johnson’s viewfinder is to see the world as a series of awkward angles, both physical and psychological. Although they range from guilelessly straightforward to layered to the point of indeterminacy, her images derive from a singular, distinctive point of view. Whatever the qualities of her surfaces, her sensibility is consistently off kilter.

ROSALIND FOX SOLOMON : THE EARLY WORK – COLLECTION MUUS
After the presentation of Deborah Turbeville in 2021, the MUUS Collection is pleased to feature the photography of Rosalind Fox Solomon, focusing specifically on a body of work shown for the first time in its entirety. Rosalind Fox Solomon (American, b. 1930) is a photographer justly celebrated for her portraiture. Over a period of fifty years she has managed to access closed circles across a diverse range of cultures worldwide. The series devoted to the First Monday market, made in Alabama between 1972 and 1976, showcases one of the artist's earliest projects.

LOUIS VUITTON EDITIONS

ASSAGERS, INSTALLATION BY ANNE-CHARLOTTE FINEL – LVMH MÉTIERS D’ART
The installation Passagers by artist Anne-Charlotte Finel, LVMH Métiers d'Art 2022 resident, is a poetic and chimerical impulse towards animality. From her trip around the world to crocodile, alligator, calf, and silkworm farms, she takes us as close as possible to the skin, eyes and bodies through a macroscopic prism where the scale effects lead to an interpretation of the living. A dive into a fantasized bestiary, in mutation and in becoming.

PINK RIBBON PHOTO AWARD – ESTÉE LAUDER COMPANIES
The Estée Lauder Companies, the world leader in luxury cosmetics (skincare, make-up, fragrances, etc.), has been involved in the global campaign against breast cancer for 30 years: it is the group's most important social impact program. In 2012, in France and in support of the Ruban Rose association, the Estée Lauder Companies Pink Ribbon Photo Award was launched to raise awareness of the fight against breast cancer through photography. For the fifth year, Paris Photo will host the photo competition with the award ceremony and the exhibition of the finalists and winners.

DIALOG AT THE PRADO MUSEUM – FUNDACION AMIGOS DEL MUSEO DEL PRADO
The Fundación Amigos Museo del Prado is a private non-profit cultural institution whose origin dates back to 1980 from the initiative of a group of founders. Since its creation, numerous individuals, institutions and companies have contributed to fulfilling its founding purpose, which is none other than supporting the Prado Museum. It currently has the support of more than 41,000 Friends. Over the past 30 years the Fundación has invited an outstanding selection of Spanish contemporary artists to dialogue with the legacy of the Prado Museum. The ongoing relationship between art of the present and past is manifest in the subsequent three collections of graphic and photographic works, where the artists approach the work of their predecessors and contemporaries. The works in the collections are in homage to the Prado but also a magnificent retrospective of almost a century of Spanish art.
