I’ll be back at AIPAD April 16-19 at the Park Avenue Armory at 643 Park Avenue between 65th & 66th Streets. The annual art fair of the Association of International Photography Dealers is a highlight of my year. A whirlwind opportunity to see great photography old and new, see old friends, meet new friends, and sell some of my work. I’ll be at Charles Schwartz Ltd.’s booth #423 (in the “exclusive” back left corner of the Armory) Thursday through Sunday, every day 11am until closing.
Charles will be showing an amazing collection of vintage photography including this wonderful half plate daguerreotype by Ezekiel Hawkins of a jaguar tamer. This photo session with Hawkins yielded what are probably the oldest surviving daguerreotypes on this rare subject (a wild animal in the presence of a human).
Not nearly as historic, but perhaps as interesting (if I say so myself) will be my new 3D printed artist books. I’ll be featuring this “Coolpix” which contains a Nikon camera complete with a memory card holding stills and video of the making of the book. The camera and memory card are sealed inside the book. It comes in a 3D printed custom box. I’ll have some other new 3D printed artist books at the show, too.
