Paris month of photography – catching the tail end

Dutch photographer Ellen Kooi makes her debut Paris exhibition between the 17th of November and the 22nd of December at the Dutch Institute. Her work is usually surrelaistic, thought provoking and quite stunning indeed. Can’t wait to see her work over this weekend! But, in the meantime will have to make do with paging through her website

And find out how o get to the dutch institute at it’s website :

Open to the public is “Paris Photo 2010” . Tickets to the event and prices are detailed on the website. The little quote here gives a bit of insight on “Paris Photo” which takes place at the Carrousel de Louvre.

“Annual photography fair Paris Photo brings together, from November 18th to the 21st, one hundred international galleries and publishers presenting a panorama of the finest examples of photographic expression from the 19th century to the present day.

Paris Photo also turns the spotlight on the Central Europe scene, reveals new talents through awards and competitions and offers a rich programme of events and encounters.

The 14th Paris Photo edition coincides with the biennial “Mois de la Photo”, a month-long photographic event, turning the city into the photography capital of the world in November.”

Their website – – is a bit of a slap dash and ‘artsy’ but navigable…

The legendary Andrée Putman has an exhibition on display at the ‘town hall’ Hotel de Ville. Open everyday save for Sunday, between 10 am and 7pm. The French icon who is famous for several artistic feats and her mastery of monochrome, black and white works and design should be worth checking out.
