NEW YORK — The AIPAD Photography Show, long-known most as a yearly congregation for all the greatest hits in vintage photos, has in recent years been attracting more and more contemporary photo work, both from smaller galleries and on the walls of major dealers. While yesterday’s opening at the Park Avenue Armory revealed enough Kertesz, Callahan, Frank, and Weston to satisfy all connoisseurs of the Graflex years, some of the most interesting works were in fact the most recent, some even in their very first showings.

Lise Setter gallery is one of few to have risked a solo artist booth, with works from Damion Berger’s recent series of long-exposure and sequential abstractions of fireworks, printed from large-scale negative enlargement. “Solo booths are either brilliant or suicide,” explains Setter, who traveled to NYC from Scottsdale, Arizona. “We’re doing great, so we’re happy.” The artist was also on hand at the booth to discuss his work.

At Bonni Benrubi gallery, gallerist Rebecca Reeve noted that some of her best sales were from newly represented artists, including black-and-white abstractions from Lauren Semivan’s “The Storm,” which, the gallerist noted, “have been flying off the shelves.” Also on first view, and notable, are the colorful polyptychs of transformative urban sites by artist Stephane Couturier.
