Probably the world’s most prestigious annual photography event, The Photography Show (organized by AIPAD – The Association of International Photography Art Dealers) is the longest-running and foremost exhibition of fine art photography in America.
Now in its 39th year, AIPAD’s annual Photography Show presents a wide range of museum-quality work covering the history of the photographic medium, from the very earliest 19th Century photography up to modern and contemporary photographic art, including photo-based art, video and new media. This year, over 100 of the world’s 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.
