The fair welcomes 29 new main sector galleries, including Afronova (Johannesburg), Ceysson & Bénétière (Paris), and Loft Art (Morocco) with multimedia works by Joana Choumali. Stenvenson (Cape Town) presents new works exploring gender and identity by Zanele Muholi; The Curiosa sector, inaugurated in 2018 and dedicated to emerging artists, presents a selection of 20 projects curated by Shoair Mavlian, director of Photoworks and former assistant curator of photography at the Tate Modern. This year Curiosa highlights new trends in contemporary photographic practice, including new documentary approaches and themes focusing on identity and the natural environment. Paris Photo continues its commitment to women in photography with Elles x Paris Photo, a programme initiated in 2019 in partnership with the French Ministry of Culture and supported by Kering / Women in Motion to promote the visibility of women artists and their contribution to the history of photography.
