The world’s largest and longest-running art fair dedicated to photography—holding its place among the world’s top art fairs—is coming to the United States. The partnership between the fair and the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) is bringing the second US edition to New York (after holding Paris Photo Los Angeles for three consecutive years and ultimately canceling it in 2016), from April 3-5, at Manhattan’s Pier 94. The fair will replace Aipad’s long-running Photography Show.

Christoph Wiesner, the fair’s artistic director promised plenty of “contemporary energy,” nodding to the engagement with the next generation of art world superstars, hopefully creating long-lasting connections to the future of the industry. The complete lineup of 126 galleries and 47 publishers from 24 countries, handpicked by their selection committee has been unveiled (New York Host Committee: Chris Boot, David Campany, Dennis & Debra Scholl, Kristen Joy Watts, Mark Guiducci, Mary Ellen Goeke, Max Wolf, Michael Houston, Michelle Grey, Roxana Marcoci, Mitch Epstein, Sean Hanratty). The 47 publishers which will feature at the fair reflect the importance of books in terms of how Paris Photo “promotes photography and appeals to new collectors,” stated by the fair’s director Florence Bourgeois.

Extending Paris Photo to the US market means diversifying the fair with a stronger international presence, which this partnership aims to achieve, something Aipad struggled with in the past, says Peter Fetterman, the namesake of the Santa Monica, California-based Peter Fetterman Gallery: “This new partnership can only be a win-win for all. The expertise and track record of art fair management that Paris Photo brings to the table plus the dynamic nature of the New York location is something I am personally looking forward to as I am sure many of my colleagues do as well.”

The main sector has already booked 15 solo shows by artists that include Gregory Halpern, Joel Sternfeld, Dutch photographer Bastiaan Woudt, Brazilian artist Mario Cravo Neto, Bob Gruen, and Sofia Valentine. See the complete list of exhibitors and book publishers below.
