AIPAD In New York, 2014
It must be Spring in New York but you can’t necessarily tell from the weather. Photographers and fine art photography collectors know, however, because AIPAD is coming to the East Side once again.
The work represented is about equally split between vintage, modernist and contemporary photographs. AIPAD at the Park Avenue Armory is a great venue: accessible to trains; is not huge; the fair itself is manageable with 83 galleries.
Fellow Yale MFA Photography graduate, Jen Davis, exhibiting at Lee Marks Fine Art, shows her long-time project of psychological self portraits. Accompanying her prints is a new book, “Eleven Years,” published by Kehrer Verlang, in 2014, which explores issues of beauty, desire, and body image.
Matthew Brandt’s Dust series at M+B, Los Angeles, and Yossi Milo Gallery re-creates found images of old buildings being demolished, processed with their own dust.
At Charles Isaacs Photographs and Hans P. Kraus Jr. are the haunting, poetic views of Charles Marville’s 19th Century Paris and surrounding countryside. This coincides with a fantastic exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum running from January 29 to May 4, 2014
Alan Klotz Gallery has Robert Frank photographs from his 1948 visit to Peru, where he made a series of images with spontaneity that captures the country’s expansive vistas and rural life as only he can.
