NEW YORK, NY.- The 34th annual AIPAD Photography Show New York garnered high praise from collectors, curators, critics, and exhibitors during its four day run April 10-13, 2014, at the Park Avenue Armory. Presented by The Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), the Show is the longest-running and foremost exhibition of fine art photography. Attendance was strong at 11,500, matching last year’s record.

Eighty-four of the world’s leading fine art photography galleries presented a wide range of museum-quality work. The show featured contemporary, modern, and 19th-century photographs, as well as photo-based art, video, and new media.

A large and enthusiastic crowd attended the opening night gala on April 9, which benefited Her Justice, an organization that provides free legal services to low-income women. AIPAD’s first-ever young collectors night on April 11 was also a marked success.
