NEW YORK NY, March 18, 2019—The New York Chapter of the American Society of Media
Photographers (ASMPNY) is excited to announce that we’ve been invited to participate in The
Photography Show presented by AIPADfrom April 4-7, 2019 in New York City. This is a new opportunity
to showcase and promote our members’ work with some of the top art dealers, curators, and collectors
in the world, including an international audience that attends this annual, premier photography event
in the United States. ASMPNY teamed up with Sherri Littlefield, the director of Foley Gallery, to curate
the exhibition, themed AMERICANA.
For many people the word “Americana” inspires references to apple pie, baseball, cowboys, and the
United States flag. Iconic images of the country’s historical and cultural legacy often reflect simple,
everyday life, steeped in popular appeal. Today’s image-makers dispel the tropes and clichés with
imaginative and sometimes subversive perspectives on what it means to be an American and to live
The simple way of life is gone and things now look complicated beyond our wildest dreams, and maybe
beyond our control. A unified, popular view is absent. Can we still find Americana beautiful? More
importantly, what does all this say about us?
ASMP, created in 1945, is a national membership organization whose core mission is to advocate,
educate, and provide community for image-makers — fostering thriving careers, a strong sense of
professional ethics, and an unshakable belief in the power of images.
The Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD) will hold the 39th edition of The
Photography Show April 4-7, 2019 at Pier 94 in New York City. One of the world's most prestigious
annual photography events, The Photography Show is the longest-running and foremost exhibition
dedicated to the photographic medium. Nearly 100 of the world’s leading fine art photography galleries
will present a range of museum-quality work including contemporary, modern, and 19th century
photographs, photo-based art, video and new media.
