All AIPAD, All the Time

Tonight, we will be attending the opening gala and benefit preview for the MoMA photography department at the AIPAD Photography Show in New York. AIPAD is likely the one event on the photography calendar in the US that feels like it should be required attendance for photography collectors large and small. It is the best chance (beyond other potentially closer to home regional shows) to see a wide variety of high quality photography all in one place. With a few notable exceptions, the best of what is available in the market will be at this show.

Our plan is to visit the show tonight, as well as on Thursday and Friday, and to do our best to deliver a comprehensive report of what we find on view. Since there are over 70 top notch galleries presenting, this will take us several posts over the next few days (likely continuing into next week) to cover everything adequately (so many pictures, so little time). Bear with us as we work through each booth, reviewing what's being displayed, selecting highlights, and reporting what dealers had to say. Postings will be intermittent, but dense with information once they're actually up and available.

And by all means, if you will be attending tonight or later this week, make sure to stop us from our obsessive looking and say hello. I'm the tall one with the notebook.
