Preview: Attractions Nocturnes | Bella Rose, Nicolas Auvray, Hotel Saint-Simon, Angouleme, France

Look up to sky

We always love to hear from our francophone ami and wonderfully talented Nicolas Auvray. This time, he’s got a great opportunity for photography fans with his exhibition in Angoulême, France at the gorgeous Hotel Saint-Simone.

 Attractions Nocturnes » presents a series of night photographs.  It begins as a night walk through the cities at night. Familiar places are re-discovered, figures appear and disappear in a darkness where metamorphosis and transitions take place. In these images, the city is a metaphor. Paris, Stockholm, New York…no importance… what matters is the universality of the impressions. Spectators are invited to explore other worlds and be transported in dreamlike scenes to follow their aspirations, and maybe deeper, darker passions and to look further in their identity.

For anyone living or travelling to France this month, the exhibit is sure to please.

The 37th annual AIPAD Photography show was a resounding success last weekend despite uncertainty surround its move. Long held at the Park Avenue Armory, photography’s longest running exhibition saw nearly 3,000 new attendees this year. Following the crowds were their wallets, with sales reaching well into six figures and higher.

The 2017 Show featured 16 well attended AIPAD Talks with prominent curators, collectors, artists, and journalists as well as special curated exhibitions on loan from the collections of Artur Walther, Martin Z. Margulies, and Madeleine P. Plonsker. New projects included portrait-making with the world’s first digital camera, the AIPAD Screening Room, and an outdoor video projection.

“Clients have told me that The Photography Show looked incredible!” said Kraige Block, the new President of AIPAD and Executive Director of Throckmorton Fine Art, New York. Block, who headed up the team that designed the show, noted that clients were thrilled about the new bright look, spacious aisles, and unique book section.

“The Photography Show’s move to Pier 94 brought with it both advantages and new challenges. The AIPAD organization did an incredible job bringing the fair to its new home with fantastic exhibiting galleries, wonderful special exhibitions, and dynamic programming. We congratulate AIPAD on its success,” noted Christiane Fischer, President & CEO, AXA Art Americas Corporation.

Such success should leave AIPAD confident in The Photography Show’s future.
