Paris Photo Recap: 5 Artists to watch

Posted in Uncategorized by Scott @ Rise Art on November 24, 2010

The 14th annual photography fair Paris Photo,  took place last week in the Caroussel du Louvre in Central Paris. Showcasing about 100 international galleries and publishers, it gave people an insight into todays most vibrant photographers with a focus on Europe. Most of the artists shown are already fairly established, and we loved the diversity of talent across the fair. Listed below is our take on 5 artists who’s work we believe deserve your attention.

Eric Poitevin born in 1961 in France. Lives and works in France.

We like Eric’s work because the subjects are diverse, but most of his images share a deprivation of sentimentalism, and somehow acquire a timeless universal value. More about this artist here.

Denise Grünstein, born 1956 in Finland. Lives and works in Sweden.

She is one of the more established Swedish photographers, mainly portraying people. Her images are highly recognizable for her unique ability to imprint her own feelings and temperament on film paired. See more of her work here.

Simon Roberts born in 1974 in England. Lives and works in England.

We saw the work below from the series ‘We English’, an exploration of Simon’s memories as a child, where he finds beauty in the mundane. Check out more of Simon’s work here.

Andrew Moore

Moore, trained in architecture as well as photography has a particular eye for seeing cities and buildings. His internationally acclaimed large format colour photography is simply breathtakingly. See his work here.

Joern Vanhoefen. Born 1961 in Germany. Lives and works in Berlin and Maputo.

Vanhoefen has a talent in capturing places from a new perspective – See for yourself, here.
