Celebrating its 35th edition, The AIPAD Photography Show New York, one of the world's most highly anticipated annual photography events, will be held April 16-19, 2015, at the Park Avenue Armory (643 Park Avenue at 67th Street). Presented by The Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), the fair is the longest-running and foremost exhibition dedicated to the photographic medium.
Eight-nine of the world's leading fine art photography galleries will present a wide range of museum-quality work, including contemporary, modern, and 19th-century photographs as well as photo-based art, video, and new media. The show will commence with an opening night gala on April 15th and for the first time will benefit the 92nd Street Y.

"We are honored to present the 35th edition of the show, which has evolved to become the go-to art fair for photography collectors at all levels."
