Paris Photo is fast approaching, and one thing to be on the lookout for is the previously unseen work of director and photographer Wim Wenders, who has gained the representation of the Howard Greenberg Gallery (November 9-12, 2023). Wender's work will be on display at the Grand Palais Éphémère, showcasing previously unseen and exhibited work shot when preparing for his landmark film Paris, Texas in 1983. The work will be a selection of unique vintage Cibachrome prints.
