Please Visit Us At Paris Photo Next Week

I would like to invite you to visit Vintage Works' booth (G5) in the Le Notre salon in the Carrousel du Louvre when you come to Paris Photo. The show is open from November 16-20, 2005. We have taken one of the largest booths at the fair to better exhibit some of the high points of our inventory of masterwork vintage and contemporary photography.

The vintage masterworks will include images from Edward Steichen, Gustave Le Gray, Roger Fenton, August Salzmann, Man Ray, Horst, Ilse Bing, Brett Weston, Eugene Atget, Brassai, Andre Kertesz, Julia M. Cameron, Lewis Carroll, Peter Henry Emerson, Walker Evans, Louis De Clercq, Edward Curtis, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Charles Marville, Charles Negre, Eugene Piot, Edouard Boubat, Christophe Pruszkowski, Southworth & Hawes, Linnaeus Tripe, Otto Steinert, Sabine Weiss, Clarence White, Adolphe Bertsch, Laure Albin-Guillot, Robert Doisneau, Joel-Peter Witkin, Garry Winogrand, Sherill Schell, Berenice Abbott and Eduoard Baldus--just to name a few.

Among the contemporary artists that we represent and will feature at the fair are Marcus Doyle, Joel D. Levinson, Ray Bidegain and Lisa Holden.

If you do come to Paris Photo, you are invited for a glass of champagne at the booth on Friday night from 7-8:30 p.m. (19:00-20:30 for my European friends). Photographer Marcus Doyle will also be on hand on Friday and Saturday night from 5-8 p.m. to sign and inscribe copies of his new color photography art book "Night Vision: Intimacies of an Unblinking Eye". Both the softbound copies ($39.95) and the hardbound and slip-cased limited edition of 100 copies with print ($500.00) will be available at the show.

With a little luck my mobile phone for Paris will be working. The number when dialed from Paris is 0698925018. If you are calling me long distance, you must drop the first zero and add the country code "33" in front plus your country's international calls number (in the U.S. it would be 011; in Europe 00). Of course, you can also always reach my assistant director Marthe Smith at our normal number: 1-215-822-5662.

By the way, the "rioting" in Paris is not actually in Paris itself. Only one car was burned by vandals to date in Paris, but the news media has typically overreacted again. Trust me, you will have a pleasant experience in Paris during Paris Photos and "Beaujolais Nouveau" Week.
