In Paris, in the world of photography, is excitement. This week opens Paris Photo and already it is the "Mois de la Photo". Not only are there many exhibitions with photography all over town, but many people from all over the world come to Paris to meet, to show new work, to see new work, to do bussiness. It all becomes suddenly very intense like a prairiefire.
Michel Szulc Krzyzanowski came to Paris with a new series he calls the "PS-series". Images made on the computer based on pictures made this Summer on the deserted beach in Baja California, Mexico.
Brand-new and surprising work which is rather vital if a photographer wants to continue to be successfull.
First person to see the new work in Paris, on Monday November 13, was the publisher Robert Delpire who is involved in Michel Szulc Krzyzanowski's project "The most beautiful people in the world". Delpire Editions will publish the photobook of this project in Autumn 2007.
He loved the new images of the "PS-series".
Later that day was an appointment with art-dealer Baudoin Lebon. Baudoin Lebon is having one of the more important art-galleries in Paris and is the exclusive representative of the work of Michel Szulc Krzyzanowski.
Baudoin Lebon is an amazing person. Living and working at an incredible speed. He quickly saw the new images, picked up the phone and ordered his frame-maker to come right away. To frame one of the images of the "PS-series" to include it in his Paris Photo-show. So, suddenly, the "PS-series" is going to be in this big exhibition of galleries in the Carroussel du Louvre opening Wednesday-evening.
Baudoin Lebon also called right away the curator of photography of the Centre Beaubourg to urge him to see this new work. Centre Beaubourg has been purchasing the work of Michel Szulc Krzyzanowski for their collection and Baudoin Lebon believes there might be more possible with this important museum.
