Grand Paris Photo Month replaces Paris Photo Month. Paris is getting bigger, the "Month of Photography" also ! From now on photo month will take place every year in November and Grand Paris Photo Month every 2 years.
90 exhibitions will be set up throughout 31 towns in Ile-de-France. This event will be held during the month of April and will propose 3 high points : Intense Week-ends. The first one will occur in the North-East of Paris throughout Seine-Saint-Denis and the 19th and 20th districts in Paris. The South-West Intense Week-end will go from Paris to the 92 department to "les Yvelines". the Diagonal Week-end will cross Paris from the North-West to the South-East.
Take advantage of these 2 days dedicated to the North-East of Paris to meet exhibition curators and photographers. Many exhibition event venues in Paris, Seine-Saint-Denis and Val de Marne will be happy to welcome you. A programme of visits has been made up on this occasion : reservations will open in the near future
