Probably the worldâs most prestigious annual photography event, The Photography Show (aka AIPAD: The Association of International Photography Art Dealers) is the longest-running and foremost exhibition of fine art photography in America.
Now in its 38th year, AIPADâs annual Photography Show presents a wide range of museum-quality work covering the history of the photographic medium, from early 19th Century photography up to modern and contemporary photographic art, including photo-based art, video and new media. This year, over 100 of the worldâs best photo galleries and photo book publishers will be exhibiting.
The Photography Show will feature galleries from around the world, including the U.S., Europe, Asia, Canada, Mexico, the Middle East, and South America. With four sections, the Show will offer work from both AIPAD members and new exhibitors, as well as younger galleries, and book dealers and publishers.
