AIPAD Opens in NYC

The annual photography dealers' extravaganza known as AIPAD opens this week in the Park Avenue Armory in NYC, and runs through the weekend.

AIPAD stands for the Association of International Photography Art Dealers, and this year's show features fine art photography presented by 75 dealers from across the country and around the world.

You can learn more about AIPAD here, and here.

There is usually a strong presence of Southern photographers in AIPAD.

So far, we have confirmed that Jackson Fine Art from Atlanta is one of the 75 represented dealers, and that photographers represented include Florida's Jerry Uelsman.

As we learn of others, we will update this blog entry.

Among work to be seen in this year's show is a portfolio of images by Walker Evans made in the South (see, for example, the above image, Evans' Breakfast Room at Belle Grove Plantation, White Chapel, Louisiana, 1935).


  1. John, I appreciate your up-beat post on this. However, if I remember correctly a few years ago I went through the AIPAD membership list, and the number of members from the south was chillingly low. I don't think it has changed much.

  2. Well, it worked out pretty well for Chip Simone. I meant to go through the list of dealers and their wares but haven't had time yet. Surely the Southern heavy hitters -- Eggleston, Mann, etc -- are represented at AIPAD by somebody.
