Make Plans Now For Upcoming Photo Shows in NYC and LA


On Sunday, December 7, the American Photographic Historical Society will host its one-day photography show from 10 am-3 pm at the Holiday Inn/Martinique, 32nd & Broadway, New York, NY. Besides US dealers from around the country, several European photo dealers have told me that they will be exhibiting at this tabletop show. There will be a wide variety of photographic images including daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tintypes, stereo views and photo albums, as well as important large format photographs. In addition there will be several tables of collectable and useable cameras. There will also be a good selection of new and used books, ephemera and other collectable photographica. Free appraisals will be offered.

The ticket price is normally $6, but newsletter readers will get a $1 off by showing this page at the ticket table. Early entry is available from 8:30 am for $45.

Vintage Works will again be exhibiting. Please let us know if you would like to see something special.


Next up is Photo LA, which will be held January 15-18, 2004 at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, 1855 Main St, Santa Monica, CA. This is the 13th anniversary of the photography exposition, which has become a world-class event. Over 75 galleries and private dealers from over 20 cities, as well as galleries from Europe, will exhibit thousands of images. Vintage Works, Ltd., our company, will be exhibiting at the show and we will be bringing numerous masterworks. This year we will share the booth with Galerie Hypnos of Paris, which is a new member of the I Photo Central website (see story below).

Public hours for the exposition are Thursday, January 15th, 6-9 pm (special charity reception), Friday and Saturday, January 17th and 18th, 12-7 pm, and Sunday, January 19th, 12-6 pm. Tickets for the event are $15 for one day and $25 for three days and can be purchased at the door. Readers of this newsletter can take $5 off of the one-day ticket or $8 off of the three-day ticket by showing this page at the ticket booth.


Last, but certainly not least, is the granddaddy show of them all: AIPAD (Association of International Photography Art Dealers), which will be held once again at the Hilton Hotel in New York City. This is the 24th year that the show has been put on. The show has added a day to its schedule, so you will have even more time to see everything.

This year the show opens on Wednesday, February 11th and runs through Sunday February 15th. There is a benefit preview on Wednesday night from 6-10 pm at a special charge to be announced. The regular hours for the show are Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 12-8 pm and Sunday, 12-6 pm. Tickets are $20 for a one-day pass and $30 for a four-day pass. Both tickets include a very fine catalogue of the show with a great cross-reference of photographers and photo dealers. This is a MUST show, and I urge everyone to try to attend. I Photo Central members Charles Schwartz Ltd., Lee Gallery and Vintage Works, Ltd. will all be exhibiting at the show.
