The Photography Show/AIPAD Is Back In The Best Venue – Park Ave Armory

The oldest photography show, AIPAD,  opened today 4/25, in a return to the classic venue of the Park Avenue Armory.
In speaking with the gallerists, everyone is thrilled.
With over 76 photography galleries from around the globe, no matter what your taste of style, it is represented here. And take a memory home to review, consider for purchase, or share.

One thing I always try to do is discover new work that challenges me, as well as revel in seeing some of my classic favorites in person.

So we’ll consider a few of those.

Sharon Walters, represented by HackelBury in the UK, exhibited unique pieces, with a singular,  one of a kind style.

By printing only one copy of an image, she uses a knife to cut away what is not needed. Like a sculptor. This piece below is juts one and a small one, that is represented.

Check out her short interview on my IG stories.

And there is Tatiana Parcero, from JDC Galleries

Using a combination of studio life studies and overlays of documents like astrological maps, naturalist drawings, she has created a message about the humanity and nature.


The overlays create a sense of depth that draws you in and has detail that keeps you there.

Casper Faasen, represented by Bildhalle Gallery, shares images of porcelain vases that appear behind slightly crackled fronts, creating a shadow box feeling. The images encased have a minimal bow in them to emphasize the shape. Come to the show to experience a full wall of them


Yes, you can sense a theme of what caught me.

There were the classics and the stalwarts of the galleries have a great, strong presence.

This is one of my favorite images of all time, made by Henri Cartier-Bresson.

Nothing like seeing a large print in person of one of Stephen Wilkes Day to Night Series, Flatiron.

And c’mon who doesn’t love a great Elliott Erwitt dog photo that greets you as you enter the venue:

Do not forget about the artist talks, and of course the book publishers who have their own special section on the right before you entire the main floor

You can relax and have a seat and bite or beverage,

You can “discuss” the work, with others,

and throughout the show, there are comfy benches to get off your feet, stare into the booths, and maybe just review your own photos.

It’s on through Sunday, and like every year a must see, to discover, and maybe add to your collection.

I know the galleries would love that!
