Last week, Paris Photo, the prestigious fine art photography fair now in its 17th year, brought together 136 galleries and 28 booksellers/publishers representing 24 countries under one roof in the exquisite Grand Palais for a celebration of photography from the 19th century to the contemporary. Though there was an overwhelming amount of amazing work, we managed to compile a short list of some of our favorites.
