featured by GoSee EVENT : GoSee Tip : Off to Paris Photo 2023 at Grand Palais Éphémère, Paris – from 9-12 November

The 26th edition of Paris Photo is taking place at Grand Palais Éphémère under the patronage of Emmanuel Macron, President of the Republic of France.

“… Paris Photo goes straight to the heart of contemporary issues, and at the top of its agenda is responding to the new challenges presented by the medium. This edition introduces original curatorial directions and explores the limits of the medium. A new sector, dedicated to photography in the digital age and curated by Nina Roehrs, showcases artists who integrate digital practices into their work. Promoting artistic diversity and applying technological innovation so that artists can benefit from exciting creative opportunities, enabling access in order to broaden horizons, and sharing content with new audiences are all vital tools to explore how photography is changing at the cutting-edge of art and technology …

Committed to both social and environmental issues, the Paris Photo fair is designed to foster new ideas, educate, and grant new insights into the medium to as many as possible without denying its history and while nurturing discussion. All of which are directions we encourage and are continuously developing in order to push the boundaries in 2024 when we return to the Grand Palais with its generous space. Until then, we look forward to seeing you at the Grand Palais Éphémère for an edition chock full of discovery!” Florence Bourgeois, Director of PARIS PHOTO.

In 2023, Paris Photo comprises alone 191 galleries and publishers at Grand Palais Éphémère as well as online in the virtual Paris Photo exhibition space. The Main sector brings together 133 galleries from 21 countries this year. On display as part of the exhibition are historical and contemporary works alongside modern masterpieces just as much as emerging artists – providing a survey of how the medium of photography has been used from the past to the present day. The Publishers sector, with 35 international participants, supports and promotes the production of photo books.

featured by GoSee FASHION : The winners of the 38th edition of the Festival of Fashion in Hyères have been chosen - and we have impressions from the show and exhibitions for you on GoSee

Igor Dieryck, a graduate of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, was the big winner at the 38th edition of the International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Accessories in Hyères this year (GoSee reported). He took home the prestigious Grand Prix du Jury Première Vision, the 19M Métiers d’Art prize and the Public Choice award. Dieryck’s MA collection YESSIR provides an in-depth take on social and political issues from a fashion perspective. Inspired by his personal experience while working at a hotel, his collection explores the rules and symbolism of uniforms, and analyzes how they change the wearer’s relationship to the world.

Igor Dieryck: “The YESSIR collection is inspired by a reflection on the place of hotel staff within their establishment. The main objective of my collection is to highlight those who, too often, are ignored and concealed by a system that does not give them the place to be powerful and represent the different protagonists sharing the space of the hotel lobby.”

Second prize went to Igor Dieryck’s former intern at Acne Studios, Petra Fagerstrom, who won the 19M Métiers d’Art prize sponsored by Chanel’s Atelier des Matières and the Mercedes-Benz Sustainability Prize.

The Photography jury, presided by photographer Luis Alberto Rodriguez, awarded the Grand Prix 7L to French-Swiss photographer Thaddé Comar. In his Project ‘How was your dream?’, he documented the protests and tensions erupting on the streets of Hong Kong in the year 2019, a decisive moment in history when citizens protested against a government proposition to allow extradition to the Chinese mainland. The American Vintage Photography prize was awarded to Senegalese photographer Souleymane Bachir Diaw. Chinese photographer Kin Coedel received the Public Choice award. His series ‘Dyal Thak’ captures the essence of daily life in Tibetan communities with remarkable sensitivity.

In the Accessories category, the Grand Prix of the Jury – presided this year by jewelry designer Alan Crocetti, was awarded to Swiss designer Gabrielle Huguenot. The Hermès Accessories prize, offered by the leather goods specialist since 2020, was awarded to French designer Victor Salinier.
