Featured Special Exhibitions
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of AIPAD, The AIPAD Photography Show New York will present a thematic "exhibition within an exhibition." From daguerreotype to new media, each gallery will highlight a work that reflects an innovation - such as a technical or artistic development or a seminal work - in the history of photography. A complete catalogue of the Innovation special exhibition, including images and wall text, will be available at http://www.aipad.com.
