It’s the Year of the Paris Biennale of Photography!

Fall is one of my favourite seasons to travel and visit Paris. The weather is generally radiant, the light gorgeous, and the city far less busy with tourists than in the summertime. Exhibits, concerts, shows – the choice is yours.

This year, art and photography lovers are in luck. The photography Biennale Photoquai, an ever-captivating exhibit, will be taking place all along the Seine. A great opportunity to go for a stroll and discover hundreds of previously unseen works this time on the theme “We are Family ”, presented by 40 non-European photographers with Paris in the background. Striking work that won’t leave you indifferent, trust me!

Indeed, I am always impressed by the diversity and wealth of the photos presented there. Every time I’ve gone, I’ve discovered photographers from all over the world; committed artists I likely never would’ve heard of otherwise, including Émilie Régnier, a photojournalist from Quebec who’s presenting a series titled “Passport”.

Oh and don’t forget, you can visit the exhibit everyday, day and night, and it’s free!

And if your trip is scheduled sometime in November, I highly recommend visiting the Grand Palais for Paris Photo, another grandiose photography exhibit that never fails to impress.

Word of advice: sometimes there could be large crowds, so don’t hesitate to take breaks every now and then, and oh, be sure to purchase your tickets in advance to avoid long lines. Nevertheless, this visit is certainly worth the detour.

Enjoy!
