In past years you could not experience Paris Photo until November and then not without traveling to Paris, France. This year things have changed, Paris Photo has now come to Spring in Los Angeles! It opened on Friday and continues through Sunday evening at the Paramount Studio lot in Hollywood.
The centerpiece of Paris Photo is Giorgio Armani’s “THE ACQUA EXHIBITION”. Mr. Armani is an Official Partner of the fair and this year introduces “ACQUA #3”, an exceptional selection of photographs on the theme of water.
“Water, the natural element dear to Mr. Armani, is a recurrent part of his work. Since 2011, water supply has been a social cause supported by the designer through the “Acqua for Life” project, which has helped to collect more than 92 million litres of drinkable water for Green Cross International (UNICEF for United States) and its programs in Ghana and Bolivia.”
This year Acqua For Life joins forces with J/P Haitian Relief Organization (J/P HRO) which is Sean Penn’s NGO dedicated to saving lives and bringing sustainable programs in Haiti. The Magnum photographer and Cal State LA Professor, Jim Goldberg, has been chosen by Mr. Armani to catch some moments of the Haitian population’s life for the Paris Photo Los Angeles exhibition.
The Fair also features various galleries and artists. A who’s who of venerable galleries and photographers. A complete list of exhibitors is available here. Photographers represented include, without limitation, Robert Adams, Keliy Anderson-Staley; Man Ray, Michal Chelbin, Moneta J. Sleet Jr.; and Weegee. A list of all Artists is here!
