Find the full schedule below:
11:00 In Conversation: Antoine d’Agata, Raymond Depardon, and Philippe Séclier
Join Antoine d’Agata and Raymond Depardon as they discuss their latest books with Philippe Séclier who will be moderating. Both d’Agata’s latest book Un Endroit Inconvénient: En Ukraine and Depardon’s Septembre au Chili 1971/1973 discuss crucial moments in the history of two countries. Please note that this In Conversation session will be held in French. After the talk there will be a book signing. Both books, as well as other titles by the two photographers, will be available to purchase at the event.
12:45 Film Screening with Harry Gruyaert
At 12:45 Harry Gruyaert will be presenting his film, Sense of a Place, to introduce his latest book Morocco, co-published by Textuel and Thames & Hudson. The screening will be followed by a book signing. Copies of Morocco will be available, as well as many of Gruyaert’s other publications such as Last Call and Rivages.
14:00 Traces: A Presentation by Stuart Franklin
At 14:00, Stuart Franklin will be introducing Traces, published by Dewi Lewis, making its debut at this year’s Paris Photo. Traces is the last in a series of books by Franklin, following on from Narcissus and Analogies. His latest book focuses on trees and how their presence (or absence) is intrinsically linked to human history and intervention. After the presentation, copies of all three books from the series will be available to be signed.
15:00 In Conversation: William Keo and Yegan Mazandarani
Join William Keo as he discusses his new book Offside with Yegan Mazandarani, the editor of his publisher Four Eyes Editions. Offside, Keo’s first monograph, focuses on the fans of a local football competition in his hometown Aulnay-Sous-Bois. Keo uses the matches to explore the place of immigrants in French society. This talk will be followed by a book signing. This will be one of the first opportunities to purchase Offside in person.
15:50 Les Italiens: A Presentation by Caroline Barbey
Caroline Barbey will be presenting the most recent publication of Bruno Barbey’s work, Les Italiens, published by Delpire & Co last year. The series, shot early in Barbey’s career, is the very work that helped the photographer join Magnum in 1964. The talk will begin at 15:50 and books will be available to purchase following the presentation.
16:20 What’s Ours: A Presentation by Myriam Boulos
Join Myriam Boulos as she introduces her first monograph What’s Ours, published by Aperture, released on the occasion of Paris Photo 2023. What’s Ours casts an unflinching eye on the revolution that began in Lebanon in 2019 with protests against austerity and government corruption. Boulos renders the body in public space as a powerful motif, both viscera; and vulnerable in the face of state neglect and violence. After her presentation, Boulos will be signing copies of the book. This will be one of the first opportunities to view What’s Ours.
16:50 Men Untitled: A Presentation by Carolyn Drake
Carolyn Drake will present her latest book Men Untitled, published by TBW Books last month. This new series explores Drake’s relationship to myths of masculinity in American culture. Mixing symbols of virility, self-portraits, and photographs of men “laid bare,” Men Untitled functions as both introspection and documentary. Copies will be available to be signed by Drake after the presentation.
17:15 Devotion: A Presentation by Steve McCurry
Steve McCurry will present his latest photobook Devotion, published by Prestel this November. Devotion features images spanning McCurry’s forty-year career. The selection of images focus on human spirituality, exploring devotion, loyalty, faithfulness, and dedication in the midst of everyday life. Copies of Devotion, as well as McCurry’s previous publications and a selection of posters, will be available to be signed after the presentation.
17:45 Selected Writings: A Presentation by Richard Kalvar
