The goal of this new fair is to expand the collecting universe for photographs and photo-based works by bringing together the traditional photo collector with collectors of contemporary art. These two communities have seen increasing overlap, but this will be the first time they get a truly international fair with the quality and reputation that is The Armory Show.

By special invitation of the organizers, George Eastman House (, Rochester, New York, will present a specially designed exhibition at the fair that will include historical and contemporary masterworks from its collection. From groundbreaking early nineteenth century daguerreotypes, calotypes, and photograms to contemporary iterations of these processes today, the exhibition will demonstrate the persuasive power of photography as a cultural and aesthetic medium. Within this overview, special emphasis will be given to the strong alliance between photography and printmaking that gave rise to historical photomechanical practices (woodburytype, collotype, photolithography, xerography, etc.) and laid the contemporary ground for new digital technologies (Iris, ink jet print, etc.). On hand throughout the fair will be a conservator from the Eastman House, who will discuss issues of preservation, conservation and authenticity of historical and contemporary photography, including digitally-derived imagery. On-site demonstrations and handouts of historical and contemporary photographic processes, including care and condition, will be offered so that visitors to The Armory Photography Show 2002 have an opportunity to gain expert knowledge about their special photographic interests and collections. Established in 1949, George Eastman House was the first museum dedicated to the acquisition, study and preservation of photography in the United States. Its photography collections number more than 400,000 objects, ranging from the medium’s earliest practices of daguerreotypy and paper negative printing to contemporary photography and photo-related works, including digitally-derived imagery, currently a special emphasis of acquisition. More than 8,000 photographers are represented in its collection.

In addition, seven (7) world-renowned publishers of fine art photography books will also exhibit, including: 21st: The Journal of Contemporary Photography, Blind Spot, D.A.P Distributed Art Publishers, Nazraeli Press, Powerhouse Books,, and Twin Palms Publishers. The participation of these respected photographic book publishers will be unique among New York photo fairs.

Ten (10) leading art and photography magazines will exhibit, including: Camera Austria, Exit, Photography in New York, Photography Now, and Tema Celeste.
