A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!

About Our Experience at AIPAD 2018

Every year in April, photography dealers from around the world descend on New York for one of the world’s most prestigious annual photography events; this year was an exceptional gathering. The Photography Show, hosted by the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) is the longest-running and foremost exhibition dedicated to the photographic medium, offering a wide range of museum-quality work, including contemporary, modern, and 19th-century photographs. More than 100 of the leading fine art photography galleries from around the world, including the U.S., Europe, Asia, Canada, Mexico, the Middle East, and South America were represented in this 38th edition of the fair. The Ansel Adams Gallery was honored to be invited to this exciting and distinguished artistic venue.  

During the five day event, there were numerous talks by collectors, curators, critics and other influential members of the photography world. Thousands of people visited the exhibition and The Ansel Adams’ booth garnered quite a bit of attention from dealers and industry insiders who were amazed at our outstanding collection of works by Ansel Adams, particularly the five mural-sized photographs. Most fair-goers had never had the opportunity to view one mural, much less five! We believe that the Winter Sunrise mural, which was hung prominently in the center of our booth, was photographed more than any other work in the entire fair! One young boy walked by with his family and exclaimed, “Mommy, I know that picture, I saw it in a book, it’s Winter Sunrise!” Which shows, it is never too young to start art education! We also had several groups from local universities and photography clubs come by to discuss and admire up-close our iconic prints.

Matthew Adams, the grandson of Ansel Adams and current president of The Ansel Adams Gallery, was in attendance at our gallery’s booth throughout the fair. Many of the fairgoers were delighted to meet him in person, and in many cases, shared their personal stories of how Ansel Adams had touched their lives in a variety of different ways. We are grateful to our many collectors and fans that came to see us at AIPAD from as far away as San Diego, Chicago, Delaware and Philadelphia; we don’t always get to meet our clients in person, so it was a pleasure for us to get to know them and have the opportunity to discuss their interest in photography.
