At a time of endless morphing of photographic imagery thanks to the digital revolution, it is timely to take into account exactly “What is a photograph?”

Organized by ICP Curator Carol Squiers, What Is a Photograph? will explore the intense creative experimentation in photography that has occurred since the 1970s. Conceptual art introduced photography into contemporary art making, using the medium in ways that challenged it artistically, intellectually, and technically and broadened the notion of what a photograph could be in art. A new generation of artists began an equally rigorous but more aesthetically adventurous analysis, which probed photography itself—from the role of light, color, composition, to materiality and the subject.What Is a Photograph? brings together these artists, who reinvented photography.

On Site: Best of AIPAD Photography Show – International Dealers

This year’s AIPAD show is underway (through Sunday) with more than 70 dealers showing the best in classic and contemporary photographic prints at the Armory in New York City.

One of the exciting aspects in the fine art photography marketplace is the global nature of its subject matter … and marketing. In keeping with that phenomenon, AIPAD has good gallery representation from Asia, Europe, Canada and South America. Among the international contingent of dealers, two galleries standout with images that are unique as well as eloquent in their visual presentation.

  • Czech Center of Photography
  • Vasari

The Czech school of photography has gained prominence over the years with the help of leaders like Howard Greenberg. The photos (and there are many in this small CCP booth) are a “buffet offering” of singular vision and talent. Note: This gallery generated a lot of discussion at Photo LA this year.

Looking to South America, it is nice to hear the Italian/Spanish lilt of the gallery associates from Buenos Aires’ Vasari gallery. Their array of Black and White images are striking and thought provoking. You will not be disappointed.

But there is more:

  • Jadejar Fine Art (Beijing)
  • Gregory Leroy (Paris)
  • Eric Frank Fine Art (London)
  • Stephen Bulger Gallery (Toronto)

These galleries each have unique portfolios with pictoral content that also should be savored during a visit to the AIPAD show this year.

It is inspiring to see the international flair these dealers bring to an impressive AIPAD show at the Armory this year.
