Inside AIPAD photography show, New York

The Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) celebrates its 35th year anniversary with a new edition of the AIPAD Photography Show, which will be held from April 15-19 in Manhattan’s Upper East Side at the Park Avenue Armory. The AIPAD annual fair, which is one of the longest running photography events in the world, has as an aim to create and maintain high standards in the business of exhibiting, buying and selling photographs as art. At the same time, it foments communication within the photographic community, supporting emerging photographs and encouraging the public appreciation of photography as art.

This year, the fair will feature more than 80 of the world’s most important art galleries, coming from the US, Europe, Canada, Asia and South America. The exhibitors will present a wide selection of works, ranging from 19th century photography to contemporary and modern creations, as well as photo-based art, video and new media. Burt Stern’s legendary images of Marilyn Monroe will be on view at the stand of Staley-Wise Gallery, New York; a series of portraits of Chet Baker, Miles Davis and other jazz musicians by Carol Reiff will be presented at Michael Dawson Gallery, Los Angeles; and an selection of Katsumi Watanabe’s photos of gangsters, barwomen and drag queens from the 70’s will be on display at the stand of Taka Ishii Gallery, Tokyo.

The fair, which is accompanied by a series of short films, talks and panel discussions, is launched today with an exclusive opening night preview and a private cocktail reception for new collectors —a definite no-miss for all photography lovers out there!
