Undertaken by a panel of experts, Art Tactic’s confidence index for the photography market has currently noted a score of 81 (a figure higher than 50 means a positive response to the market).

It is a relatively young market with similarly young collectors, however over the last three or four years we have seen prices constantly increase.

The gradual depletion of important works on the market combined with the remarkable valuation work carried out over the last ten to 15 years by curators, gallery owners and institutions (for example Rencontres d’Arles) has paid off.

The general public’s interest in photography is constantly growing and we have seen evidence that prices will follow.

“I believe this is just the beginning, the market is really growing,” explains Julien Frydman, director of Paris Photo.

In its latest report the American company Art Tactic reveals that the level of confidence in Modern and contemporary photography is growing, with a 16.5% increase over the last six months — the highest level noted since March 2011.

This year more than 100 galleries are investing in the fair, with a notable growth of 20% in Asian galleries.

This year, the exhibition “Livres d’artiste et photograhpie” is to display a selection of art books published between the 1960s and today.
