 - July 25, 2013

Last April, the Association of International Photography Art Dealers held a series of panel discussions in conjunction with its annual AIPAD Photography Show. Among the topics discussed was “The Fine Art Photo Market from Birth to Today.” Noting that the transformation of photography in recent decades has been nothing short of revolutionary, the panel explored how developments in the field have been driven by the marketplace.

Speakers on the hourlong panel, which you can watch in its entirety in the video above, included Catherine Edelman, of Catherine Edelman Gallery, Chicago; Celso Gonzalez-Falla, chairman of the board, Aperture Foundation; Duane Michals, artist; and Susanna Wenniger, senior specialist, photography, Artnet. The moderator is Jill Arnold, director, business development, AXA Art Insurance Corporation.
