Lens Culture FotoFest Paris offers all participants tremendous opportunities to share knowledge, connections and insights. Participating photographers will get expert feedback about their work and have the possibility of getting editorial assignments, book publication contracts, art gallery representation, and feature articles in magazines, online and in print. The one-to-one meetings with influential decision-makers in the photography field offer photographers opportunities to advance their career development and connect them to people who can help them with artistic and business goals. In turn, the invited reviewers — museum curators, gallery owners, festival directors, publishers, representatives from photo agencies — will have the chance to discover new talent as well as the latest work of photographers who are already established. Lens Culture FotoFest Paris takes place immediately before Paris Photo — the world’s largest international fair and marketplace for contemporary photography. Paris is one of the world’s capitals for photography, so there is always lots of inspiration to be discovered in galleries, museums and other venues throughout the city, as well.
