About nofound photo fair
The vocation of nofound photo fair, the contemporary photography fair in Paris, is to bring together all those involved in the creation of the photographic image by means of a selection of unique and original creative projects.
Photography in contemporary artistic practices
Contemporary art galleries are teeming with artists who work through the medium of photography: mixed media artists, sculptors, performance artists, etc. Created in 2011, the nofound photo fair's aim is to shed light on the links between photography and contemporary art. Conceived as a universal exhibition space, the fair chooses its exhibitors from amongst the projects that have been submitted. The fair takes up residence in the Garage Turenne, a unique venue in the heart of the Marais district, with 1.400 m2 of glass-roofed display space that imposes few practical constraints, offering exhibitors tremendous freedom in the work they can exhibit and the way in which it can be displayed.
Latest developments on the photographic scene
Over the last few years we have seen the development of a new photographic scene of a particularly dynamic kind, a scene that has grown out of and continues to build itself around the possibilities opened up by the Internet. This scene is made up of gallery owners, contemporary art curators, publishers, bookshops, art directors, agency art buyers, etc. An international community that can participate wherever they live, thanks to the phenomenon of social networking and websites like nofound (the blog!). nofound photo fair provides an opportunity to bring the whole range of players on the photographic scene together in one place once a year in Paris, during the Semaine de la Photographie. A forum for debate and artistic collaboration, nofound photo fair offers a glimpse of the latest developments on the photographic scene both for the benefit of those and in partnership with those who live and create art on a day-to-day basis.
