AIPAD Photography Show Preview

Even though it's only been a couple of weeks since the Armory Show hitched up its wagons and left New York City, there's a real sense of anticipation about the AIPAD Photography Show happening this week. Partly this is due to New Yorkers' seemingly insatiable appetite for art fairs, but it's also because – despite the burgeoning presence of photographic work in contemporary art practice – the show's concentration on photography, both historical and contemporary, gives it a unique flavor.

There's also, of course, the quality of the pictures on display: The Association of International Photography Art Dealers was established in 1979 with the specific task of maintaining standards in photography dealership. Some 75 of its current 145 members will be presenting work at the Park Avenue Armory this Thursday through Sunday (after a gala preview on Wednesday), and selecting the best won't be easy. In addition to the highlights included in the photo gallery to the left, keep an eye out for work by Reenie Barrow at Robert Burge/20th Century Photographs, Tomoko Sawada at Zabriskie, Edgar Martins and Amy Stein at Paul Kopeikin, Binh Danh at Lisa Sette, and Abelardo Morell at Bonni Benrubi. All are excellent in my opinion.
