Art Photo Collector

"A portrait! What could be more simple and more complex, more obvious and more profound." —Charles Baudelaire 

The 33rd edition of the New York AIPAD Photography Show kicks off on April 4th. For collectors and enthusiasts, this is a superlative opportunity to see the finest work going on in photography. More than 80 galleries and dealers worldwide are represented, including Brooklyn-based gallery, Klompching, who will be exhibiting for the first time. Their current show “Conflict and Costume,” by photographer Jim Naughten, features striking portraits of members from the Herero tribe of Namibia. Against the backdrop of the southwestern African landscape, we see Herero history carefully revealed through a conflation of fashion. Naughten’s use of strong flash lighting under a bright sun gives the portraits an added boost—colors burst and skin shines. 

The AIPAD show, events and talks continue through April 7th. Mark your calendars and treat yourself to one of the best chances of the year to see (and buy) an impressive array of work from all over the world, from historical to contemporary and everything in between. See you there. Lane Nevares
