If there is one unmissable event taking place during Mois de la Photo à Paris - the month-long collaboration between countless photography institutions, museums and galleries that turns the city into the world's capital of photography during November - it is Paris Photo (Carrousel du Louvre, 18-21 November) the world's leading fair for 19th century, modern and contemporary photography. 

Over 100 jury-selected exhibitors from 25 different countries will be taking part in the 14th edition, which also features a special exhibition, this year titled Spotlight on Central Europe, and two photography prizes: the BMW Paris Photo Prize and the SFR Young Talents competition.
