Each year in April, photography dealers from around the world land in New York for the Association of International Photography Art Dealers, AIPAD. Now in its 38th edition, it’s being held at Pier 94 for the second year. It was at the Park Avenue Armory up until 2016. With the dealers comes an array of work from vintage to today, and the focus is always Photography with a capital P.
Photographer Ruben Natal-San Miguel in exclusive pics for The Wow Report, decided to spotlight some of the 96 dealers themselves in their booths. For people who are literally behind the person behind the camera, Ruben somehow got these folks to cooperate –even collaborate. As one of the greats said,
“A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.” —Edward Steichen
