From World Press Photo to Foto Fever, the French capital is shining a light on photography with this season’s cultural calendar brimming with a host of events and art fairs. The main rendezvous is Paris Photo at the Grand Palais; more than 190 galleries and exhibitors from some 30 countries are taking part, offering visitors a chance to admire the work of both modern masters and emerging talents.
