Mois de la photo-OFF 2012

The ‘Month of Photography’ fringe festival in Paris

The Mois de la Photo-OFF is a fringe festival organised in parallel to the official Mois de la Photo festival, held in November every two years.
Our goal is to offer a dynamic selection of emerging photographers exhibited in young galleries and unexpected spaces, like a train station.
If you are a photographer and not represented by a gallery in Paris, you must first find a space in which to exhibit your work.
This space could be a gallery, a cultural center, a bookshop or almost any other indoor or outdoor space which is suitable to host an exhibition. Bars, restaurants and cafés are excluded.
All the exhibits are free and are listed in a printed catalogue according to their geographic position in the city.
Please note that the festival organisers do not propose spaces to photographers, so if you do not live in Paris, please think twice about the practicalities of organising your own exhibit before pre-inscription (which costs 25 euros).
Due to the enormous content of this site (100 exhibits in Paris), it is impossible for us to develop a complete English version.

There is therefore no other documentation available in English.

If you have any specific questions, please contact us.
You can follow us Facebook and Twitter.


Paris Photographique

The Mois de la Photo-OFF is organized by Paris Photographique, a non-profit structure specialized in the organisation of fine art exhibitions that showcase the work of emerging and established, independent, contemporary photographers. Organised by photographers for photographers, the aim of our exhibitions is to encourage emerging photographers to exhibit and sell their work. We also aim to create working relationships between galleries, agents, collectors and artists. Founded in 2004, our aim today is to create different events that showcase contemporary photography. The success of the Mois de la Photo-OFF festival in November 2006, 2008 and 2010, is testament to our ambition to discover talent and promote photography in Paris.
