Darryll, who just returned home from his trip to Los Angeles, flew to New York City yesterday for the annual AIPAD Photography Show, which is one of the most celebrated international photography art events in the world. It is presented by The Association of International Photography Art Dealers, and will run from April 4-7th, 2013. The prestigious event, which is now in its 33rd year, features over 75 of the most prevalent names in art galleries specializing in photography, will be at the historic Park Avenue Armory on the city’s Upper East Side. Shanghai, London, Antwerp, and Paris are just a few of the world cities that will be represented.
In addition to group exhibitions, there will be a number of solo shows, book signings, and numerous panel discussions to stimulate the minds of photographers and art admirers alike. This year marks Catherine Edelman's first AIPAD show as president of the organization. Her gallery, a Chicago powerhouse, has been in business for over 20 years.

The art ranges from early 19th century photography to work from established modern and contemporary photographers. Those who prefer contemporary digital work or video installations will also have a cornucopia of aesthetic stimulation freely available to them.
