Paris est une photo - Outside

PARIS EST UNE PHOTO is a gallery of old and contemporary photos, and a frame store

Hello ! My name is Mathieu Salsi, I opened my framing and photography gallery in early 2016. I am passionate about old objects and decoration, and all types of images !


We regularly organize new exhibitions of contemporary, young and experienced photographers from all over the world and from different backgrounds. We present permanent photographers at the gallery, and event photographers. All our photos are sold in limited edition and numbered print, from small to very large format. We sell them with or without a frame.

Mathieu Salsi is a craftsman-framer with a unique expertise in customization: he challenges traditional codes by using original papers and fabrics in his frames. For his private or professional customers, he creates by hand real personalized decorative objects which bring creative added value to the framed document (photo, pub, engraving, etc.).

Our original artworks


At the gallery, the exhibitions are renewed every three months. We present both young and more experienced photographers. Several photographers like Kioro, Fikry Botros, Luc Mercelis, Xavier Mathieu or Corinne Wargnier, are on permanent display. For the works on display, different formats are available, with or without a frame, allowing all budgets to be able to afford a rare and exceptional piece at an affordable price. Contemporary photos are sold in numbered prints and in limited editions (the numbering varies according to the work and the artist).

PARIS EST UNE PHOTO regularly goes in search of rare old photos, which it makes available to bargain hunters and collectors. These old photos in original print, single or numbered copies, stamped or signed by the photographer, are dated from 1860 to the present day and are on sale at the gallery. We only publish part of it on our website.

Historical Passage Jouffroy, central Paris

Paris est une Photo has the privilege of being located Passage Jouffroy, a famous covered passage in the 9th arrondissement. You will be able to take advantage of the luminosity offered by the glass roof of the Passage to admire the works that we present. Inaugurated in 1847 as an extension of the Passage des Panoramas, the Jouffroy Passage enjoyed considerable success from the start, thanks to its privileged location on the boulevard Montmartre. And that without counting on the installation of the Grévin museum, a few years later.
