Given the breadth of art normally on view at the annual ADAA Art Show, photography is generally only a minor subtext to the fair. This year was no different – out of the roughly 70 booths at the Park Avenue Armory, just five were filled with solo shows of photography (or of artists who use or used photography as one of their primary modes of expression), with a handful of other photographic works sprinkled throughout the rest of the fair. So for the photography-focused collector, it only took a quick pass through the aisles to survey everything on offer.
What follows below is a brief survey of the photography highlights, organized in slideshow form. A short discussion of each featured work is provided, along with linked gallery names, artist names, and prices as appropriate/available.
