Deborah Bell is showing a mix of American and European artists, including two vivid, punchy color photographs taken in the last two years of the outdoor dining sheds that popped up during the pandemic by Dutch artist Wijnanda Deroo, which point to both the haphazard and the playful nature of the structures, located in this case in the East Village. In contrast, Bell is also showing a soft, light-dappled tree-lined footpath in black and white by August Sander from the 1930s and a spare, minimal landscape of Hotspur, Kansas, that is, in fact, mostly sky, by Marcia Resnick. Also on view, one of Deborah Turbeville’s iconic, languorous black-and-white images of models posing in a bathhouse.

Santa Fe’s Monroe Gallery will be showing a selection of contemporary photojournalism, with a central focus on Sanjay Suchak's Take Them Down project documenting the deinstallation and repurposing of monumental Confederate statues. The gallery, which recently began representing Mark Peterson, will also show photographs Peterson made at the Robert E. Lee monument in Richmond, Virginia, in 2020 as well as other works by the photographer. Other photographs on view at the Monroe Gallery’s booth will focus on climate change, women’s rights, and the 2016 Standing Rock protest to stop the Dakota Access pipeline. The gallery will also have a special selection of fashion, WWII, and portrait photographs by Tony Vaccaro, who passed away in December 2022 at the age of 100 and who was a longtime gallery artist and a frequent presence in the Monroe Gallery booth during previous AIPAD Shows.

Among the works on view at Zurich’s Galerie Bildhalle’s booth will be a pair of romantic, black-and-white photographs by René Groebli from the series The Eye of Love. He took the photographs of his wife, Rita, over four days on their honeymoon in Paris: both show Rita turned away from the camera, one taking off a blouse, the other lying in bed. Edward Steichen discovered the series in the 1960s and bought one of them for the Museum of Modern Art. Also at the gallery’s booth will be a photograph by Ilona Langbroek, a deep blue-hued image of a woman gazing out of a window, holding a parasol, from her series Silent Loss, about her family’s history in the former Dutch East Indies. The melancholy of these images is countered by a photograph by Willy Spiller of a group of schoolgirls, in Catholic-school uniforms, sprawled on the seats of an A train headed to Brooklyn’s Far Rockaway. It being 1978, the girls’ hair is feathered, and the subway car is filled with graffiti.

Danziger Gallery is bringing, among other things, a selection of images based in California: one of Matthew Porter’s flying cars (North Beach, 2024), in which a car seems to hang suspended over a street, while a woman crosses below, seemingly unaware. Also on view, a unique, brightly colored print by Matthew Brandt (Joshua Tree, VC2H, 2023) made with dyed sand on paper with varnish showing one of the trees for which the park was named. In a 1982 black-and-white photograph by Bill Dane, a nude dancer poses on a Hollywood bar, a few patrons – including Garry Winogrand – just visible beyond (Ivar Theater, Hollywood, 1982). Also on view at the gallery’s booth, one of Susan Derges’s luminous, vertical photograms of the River Taw Hawthorn (2020) from a series she’s been working on for 20 years in which she captures the movement of water by submerging photographic paper into the river and exposing the paper using moonlight or a flashlight.
