Paris Photo (and Transport Worker Strike) Countdown

I leave Monday evening for Paris Photo, and arrive Tuesday to set up the booth. Luckily, it is many hours before the expected transport worker strike that is sure to shut down the city. The VIP preview is Wednesday afternoon, and the show opens to the public Thursday. I wonder how the strike will effect attendance, and galleries’ sales.

I can’t comment of the politics of the striking worker, but it is unquestionable where the real power lies in France.

Despite the possible problems and the exchange rate, here are some things worth looking forward to:

-The Tuileries in the morning
-Vintage post cards sold along the Seine
-The Month of Photography
-Cheese
