The AIPAD Photography Show celebrates its 30th year of bringing together an enormous—almost overwhelming—array of works for collectors who favor traditional photography. A special exhibition this year is titled “Innovation,” featuring milestones in the history of photography from daguerreotypes to digital. With more than 70 of the world’s leading fine-art photography galleries represented, you’ll see everything from Mariana Cook’s black-and-white of Barack and Michelle Obama cuddling in their living room in 1996, to Stanley Kubrick’s memorable portrait of the boxer Walter Cartier from 1947, to a hand-colored print of a U.S. Army cavalry corporal from 1863. See how diverse this is? The annual fair, presented by the Association of International Photography Art Dealers, also features several panels on Saturday, including “Bruce Davidson: A Journey of Conciseness” and “The Art of Fashion Photography,” with critic Vince Aletti, among others.
