Gallery Luisotti will focus its Paris Photo 2023 booth on two intertwined trajectories in the development of conceptual ideas in photography. One following the performative and interactive image, and the second using the landscape to measure human memory and the expansion and contraction of time.

We have long valued the contributions our artists have created around the contemporary landscape. This year we present 11 artists with works spanning from the 1970s to the present.
