Paris Photo Los Angeles aims to be the United States edition of Paris Photo, the renowned Paris fair for vintage and contemporary art photography held in Paris each November.

Located throughout Paramount Pictures Studios, as well as the New York Street Backlot, the trade fair organisers hope to create a uniquely southern Californian event which combines an art show with a programme also devoted to the discussion and display of the moving image.

The core of the Paris Photo Los Angeles is composed of 60 galleries, 12 publishers / booksellers from 14 countries showing fine art photography of the 20th and 21st centuries. Some of the top galleries in this market include Gagosian, Daniel Blau, Loevenbruck, Cherry and Martin, Hamiltons, Perrotin, Westlicht, Brancolini Grimaldi, Fraenkel, Karsten Greve.

The inaugural edition also features screenings of works created using the moving image. According to the organisers, the addition of the moving image to Paris Photo Los Angeles allows for the exploration of a variety of artistic approaches, thus expanding on the conceptual understanding of the photograph. A series of films and videos will showcase young practitioners in the field and focus on fallen masters of experimental cinema. The Screenings are part of the "Sound and Vision" Public Program, and are curated by Douglas Fogle.

The inaugural United States edition includes a book-signing programme spread out over the three-day event. The scheduled book-signing program is as follows and will take place in various locations throughout Paramount Pictures Studios:

At the inaugural fair in Los Angeles, BMW and Paris Photo celebrate the tenth anniversary of their partnership with the presentation of the M1 BMW Art Car by Andy Warhol, created by the pop artist in 1979. Originally raced in Le Mans, Warhol, in his own words, meant to “give a vivid depiction of speed. If a car is really fast, all contours and colors will become
blurred.”
