    If you're in NYC this weekend.....AIPAD!

    The show this year is again being held at the Park Avenue Armory on the upper east side. Here's a review from the NY Times. (BTW, the fee for attending is $25 and includes the show catalog.)

    Well I was already on my way to NY to pick up a dry mount press this weekend so this just works out perfectly.

    Great. I'd like to make the 11AM opening if you can swing it.

    I hope this isn't too late but...

    please make note of how much black and white work is being shown.

    Apparently, this year's show has a lot more than last years and I am quite curious.

    thanks.

    I'm going to go on Sunday and hope to get there, like Bruce, at the opening. I always try to survey things like: print sizes, matting styles (float or not), frame material and color (remember silver?), mat vs glossy for B&W, color or monochrome, alternative process (last year I saw more salt prints, both vintage and modern, than I'd ever seen in one place before), subject matter, and anything else I can identify. It's always a very inspiring show for photographers...well for me it is; I can't wait to go home and use my camera afterward...and must be an absolute candy store for collectors.

    I'm looking forward to your review, John! I won't be able to go, and really enjoyed it last year.

    Lots of B&W shown, I thought. I was mainly looking at albumen prints, and there were certainly enough to keep me occupied for most of the day. The most impressive was a print by Bisson Fréres of Alyscamps, Arles dated 1857--beautiful tones and sharp figures incorporated into what was otherwise an architectural composition.

    Lots of August Sander, it seemed. Bricklayers around every corner.

    I hadn't seen too many original Weegee prints before, but there were a number there, printed for exhibition, and they were quite good prints.

    Siskind was well represented, as was Helen Levitt, and there was a good show of Szarkowski prints featured near the entrance, in case one didn't believe that he was really a good photographer as well as an important curator.
