Although the weather outside was troubling, inside_ The Pier at 94th in New York City lit up any dreary notions with its presentation of THE PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW PRESENTED BY AIPAD. (05-08 April 2018.) For the 2nd year at its new home, dockside the Hudson River, the 38th edition of the highly selective photographic expo once again proved to be a mecca for a worldwide audience of photo enthusiasts. AIPAD (Association of International Photography Art Dealers) presented a brilliant range of museum-quality work, including the genres of contemporary, modern, and 19th-century photographs, as well as photo-based art, video, and new media. The venue was complete with 96 of the world’s leading fine art photography galleries, over 30 book sellers, 15 AIPAD talks, three special exhibitions as well as host of engaging events. It is the longest-running and foremost exhibition dedicated to the photographic medium.
