AIPAD Photography Show in New York City

The annual photography show of the Association for International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) is taking place this weekend at the Park Ave. Armory (at 67th Street). As with any art fair, this one fills the space with a maze of dealers booths, each more or less filled with wares—in this photographs—for sale. It’s a chance to see work from around the world, ostensibly, and if you’re in the collecting mood, to purchase a few for your collection (without having to travel the world to visit each dealer on their own turf).

For myself, it’s a chance to see work, but primarily it’s a chance to reconnect with other people in the industry and to explore ways of working together.

This year, it’s also a chance to launch a couple new Radius Books titles!

Scheinbaum & Russek (booth 206) will have copies of Beaumont’s Kitchen. David Scheinbaum, who wrote the introductory essay, will be signing the book at the booth from 2-4 on Saturday.

Gitterman Gallery will have copies of Debbie Fleming Caffery’s new book, The Spirit & The Flesh, on hand, along with copies of her limited edition version of the book.

Lastly, Julie Blackmon will be on hand to sign copies of her monograph, Domestic Vacations, at Catherine Edelman’s booth.

Please come by and say hi!
