We were so honored to have been invited by Paris Photo for their annual Los Angeles fair at Paramount Pictures Studios. If you don't know Paris Photo Fair is one of the most celebrated art fairs in Europe that showcases the most talented photographers and hundreds of galleries all over the world. We just looked through our photos and here are some highlighted galleries we loved and artists from the show.
First up is our friends from San Francisco's very own Fraenkel Gallery booth and this haunting Nan Goldin. Untitled, Boston 1990.
Nobuyoshi Araki Watermelon 1991 at Hamiltons Gallery booth.
Atta Kim, ON-AIR Project 110-2, the New York series, Times Square, eight-hour exposure from Korea's 313 Art Project.
One of the best parts of the showcase was surprisingly from the LAPD photo archives! Miles Davis, left arm and right arm, 9-16-1950. Davis was arrested for possession of heroin while on tour in Los Angeles. Later after becoming clean, he would avoid L.A. and other large cities where heroin was easily available.
Nicolas Provost's film short "Stardust," 2010.
Etudes Book No.6 at the Printed Matter booth!
Beautiful image from Paris gallery Les Fille Du Calvaire. Thierry Fontaine, Le fabricant de rêve.
We got to see a rare private screening of Dennis Hopper's art film "The Last Movie." Thanks for the bubbly too, Paris Photo!
We absolutely adore Stevenson Gallery from Capetown/Johannesberg and their forward, gorgeous images from artists like Viviane Sassen.

Thank you Paris Photo for having us. Until next year!
