Photography month gets a little bigger each time it comes around, and for this 18th edition one hundred exhibitions are on in galleries all around the city. The event’s general director Jean-Luc Monterosso has stated that each of these strives to answer ‘the questions of a society that’s losing all sense of place’ – just what that entails, exactly, remains to be seen.
The exhibitions have been put into three groups: the intimate, the Mediterranean and ‘amateur celebrities’ (notably Michel Houellebecq and James Franco). To make choosing a few to see over the next few weeks a little easier, we've chosen the most promising exhibitions for you to see. From Garry Winogrand (Jeu de Paume) to Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre (Polka Galerie), and from Roman Vishniac (MAHJ) to William Eggleston (Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson), there’s plenty to keep us entertained.
