Paris Photo art fair comes to Los Angeles

The Paris Photo art fair comes to Los Angeles: Photography's new aim - "It's the first U.S. spinoff of Paris Photo, widely considered the world's most prestigious photography fair. Instead of a typical convention center setting, the new event consists of 60 galleries and a dozen bookshops filling three soundstages and several fake buildings on the New York back lot (brownstones and loft buildings used in "Friends" and "Seinfeld") with displays of photographs and photo-based work. Organizers encouraged galleries to think about Hollywood as a theme, inviting into the mix works that explore connections between photography and film as well as the fine — often airbrushed — line between fiction and reality."
