Paris Photo Recap, part 1

So, guess who forgot the digital camera and European power adapter for the laptop?

Because of the strikes, Paris was more of a crazy adventure than in the past. Nearly missed planes and trains, more walking than I’ve ever done in my life, long bus lines, shared cabs, and mountain biking with an 8×10 camera . . . this actually might be the most memorable year yet.

The fair, however, was something of a let down. I swear if I see another oversized color print I am going to puke. Luckily, I could take refuge in the few gallery booths showing some excellent 19th century work. One print, a gravure on silk , stood out the most, but there were several others worth posting in more detail when I have the chance.
