The longest running and one of the most important international photography events in the world, The AIPAD Photography Show will be presented by the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) at the Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Avenue (between 66th and 67th Streets).

More than 70 of the world's leading fine art photography galleries will present a wide range of museum-quality work including contemporary, modern and 19th century photographs, as well as photo-based art, video and new media, at the Park Avenue Amory in New York City. Monroe Gallery is located in Booth # 317, near the Cafe.

We will be exhibiting specially selected work from the gallery's collection of 20th and 21st Century masters, including the premiere of new work by Stephen Wilkes, and the first showing of the original master vintage print of Bill Eppridge's iconic image of busboy Juan Romero trying to comfort Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy after assassination attempt on June 5, 1968. Throughout the show we are honored that several of our photographers will be present in our booth, including Alyssa Adams, widow of the late Eddie Adams, Bill EppridgeJohn Dominis,  John Filo, Guy Gillette (who is profiled in the current issue of Black & White magazine), John Loengard, Brian Hamill, Ken Regan, Steve Schapiro, Stephen Wilkes, and Barbara Villet, widow of the late Grey Villet. (We will present Grey Villet's work for the first time ever.)
