General PublicArts & Culture


Probably America’s most prestigious photography event, Paris Photo New York 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 175 of the world’s best photo galleries and photo book publishers will be exhibiting.

Paris Photo New York will feature galleries from around the world, including the U.S., Europe, Asia, Canada, Mexico, the Middle East, and South America. With multiple sections and special events, the PPNY will offer work from AIPAD members and other traditional exhibitors, as well as younger galleries, and book dealers and publishers.

Our guests will be able to join one of two separate guided tours of PPNY. One will focus on photographic prints, and one will focus on photo books. Each tour will be limited to a maximum of 8 participants, and will last approximately 90 minutes. After you register, we shall contact you to learn your choice, so the earlier you register, the greater a choice you will have. Your guided tour reservation will allow admission to the show at 12 noon, and to remain until the show closes at 7 pm.
