Today we're featuring an image of the Jardin des Tuileries and the Louvre to highlight the Paris Photo art fair, which is on until Sunday at the historic Grand Palais. Without its iconic pyramid in the frame, the Louvre can be difficult for the casual observer to identify. But this view of the world's largest art museum shows the architectural elegance that has defined the Louvre for centuries.
Paris Photo is the world's largest art fair dedicated to photography. Since 1997, the mission of the fair has been 'to promote and nurture photographic creation and the galleries, publishers and artists at its source'. Starting today, around 200 exhibitors, leading galleries and speciality publishers, along with Parisian cultural institutions, will give visitors a unique look at both historical and contemporary photographic works of art.
