The Photography Show is the longest-running and foremost exhibition dedicated to the photographic medium. It is presented by The Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), a group devoted to encouraging public support of fine art photography and confidence in collecting photography. The group features a membership of photography dealers devoted to ethics and aims to promote communication within the photography community and concerns itself with the rights of photographers and collectors, according to its mission statement. The Photography Show is one way AIPAD fosters appreciation for photography across all fronts.

“The Photography Show presented by AIPAD attracts the largest group of collectors interested in photography in the U.S.,” stated Catherine Edelman, president of AIPAD and director of the Catherine Edelman Gallery in the fair announcement. “They rely on AIPAD for exposure to the most talented artists working in photography today as well as important photography from all time periods.”

In addition, there are several works connected to museum exhibitions.

Morton Bartlett

From the 1930s through the early 1960s, Morton Bartlett, a Boston-based graphic designer and commercial photographer, had an unusual hobby. He created lifelike dolls from plaster and photographed them.  Ballerina, c. 1940-1950, is the largest and only exhibition print known to exist of one of his doll images. Bartlett’s work can be seen at Julie Saul Gallery, New York and will be included in a major exhibition at the National Gallery, Washington DC, which will also travel to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2018.

Jungjin Lee

Imbued with an elemental vastness, the acclaimed Korean artist Jungjin Lee’s photography encapsulates a world of stillness and wonder. Her meditative landscapes present a unique interplay between image and material, capturing a rare quality that earned her an early retrospective this year at the Fotomuseum Winterthur, Zurich. Lee was one of twelve renowned photographers who traveled to Israel and the West Bank between 2009 and 2013 to create work for "This Place," a major traveling exhibition, which will be at the Brooklyn Museum from February 12 – June 5, 2016. Her photographs are currently on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery (New York).
