Some art fairs evolve; others have growth spurts. This year the Photography Show has moved to Pier 94 on the Hudson from the Park Avenue Armory, its home for the last decade, and more than doubled in size. Steroids may have been involved.
Founded in 1980 by Aipad, or the Association of International Photography Art Dealers, the fair, in its latest incarnation, presents 130 participants from across the United States and around the globe, and initiates a new section for book publishers and magazines devoted to photography. Yet it has room to spare, with broad aisles and a general spaciousness enhanced by light gray carpets and walls.
