Giorgio Armani, Paris Photo’s Official Partner since 2011, will take part in the fair’s first edition in Los Angeles. Within a dedicated space at the center of the fair, Giorgio Armani will present “ACQUA #3,” a new body of work by  photographer Jim Goldberg. Taken in Haiti, these images reflect the  continued challenge of access to clean drinking water as the country  struggles to rebuild in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake of 2010.

Water supply has been a social cause supported by Giorgio Armani through  the “Acqua for Life” project, which he established in 2011, and has helped to  collect more than 95 million litres of drinkable water for Green Cross International and its programs in Ghana and Bolivia. “Acqua for Life” is now joining forces with J/P Haitian Relief Organization (J/P HRO), Sean Penn’s NGO dedicated to saving lives and bringing sustainable programs to Haiti.
