Photoquai artistic partners
Like in 2007, Photoquai brings together, for this second edition, artistic partners from across Paris, from the hill of Chaillot to the Marais area, to draw out a panorama of contemporary photographic creation in the world.
Along the Seine river which links them together, the partners will be presenting exhibitions which will create networks of strength, lateral relationships and echoes with the selection of 50 photographers whose work is on display on the riverbanks, opposite the musée du quai Branly.
