Paris Photo, now in its third year in Los Angeles, will exhibit innovative image-making from May 1 - 3, 2015 at Paramount Pictures Studios. This year, the fair sponsored by BMW includes 79 exhibitors from 17 countries and a special program, INTRODUCING! Young California Photographer Award.

The photographers nominated for INTRODUCING! come from some of the most prestigious M.F.A. programs in California, and they will also be showing their own work at Paris Photo LA. A jury will announce the recipient of the $5000 award on Thursday, April 30, 2015, just before the fair's opening.
