The Photography Show presented by AIPAD 2023Michael Hoppen's Highlights Mar 21, 2023
Michael Hoppen Gallery is pleased to return to AIPAD, New York, this year with an exceptional group of vintage prints. Each one has a story to tell. In the coming weeks, we will be showcasing a series of highlights from our presentation, revealing the truths and fictions within them.
We look forward to welcoming you to our stand (225) at the fair which opens to the public on Friday 31st March, where you will enjoy seeing our selection of works, many of which have never been exhibited before.
When Henri Cartier-Bresson fortuitously chanced upon the moment that a cheeky, young French boy was wandering down Rue Mouffetard in central Paris, hugging a bottle of wine in each arm, little did the great photographer know that the image would become one of the most iconic in photographic history. Hurrying home, the youngster's smile is rich with pride. The year is 1954; he is a child of the post-war period and emblematic of a certain European resilience. And yet, more than this, people love this photograph for its timeless quality, the way Cartier-Bresson captures something so essential about childhood.

This year will be an exciting one for the gallery… We are thrilled to announce that we will be taking a new exhibition space which will open in the autumn. This will not be conceived as a traditional gallery like the space we had at Jubilee Place, but will instead be a more intimate environment that will see photography in conversation with other media and arts. We see this as an opportunity to present a much more eclectic array of artworks and objects, such as drawings, textiles, sculpture and prints alongside photographs.
At the end of March we will exhibit at AIPAD in New York. We will include vintage prints by Danish photographer Krass Clement, whom we recently started representing and whose work will be shown in America for the first time. The images and stories that accompany his work are extraordinary in so many ways.
Our commitment to Japan continues and we will be revealing some incredible, previously unseen prints at the fair, as well rare vintage works by Lartigue, Blumenfeld and Cartier-Bresson. There will also be newly released editions by Tim Walker and Sarah Moon. We are also excited to present our new rising star – Monsieur Roussel whose unique prints from the 1940/50’s are sure to cause a stir upon their first showing in New York.
I am very excited by the appointment of Shoair Mavlian as the new Director of The Photographers’ Gallery and wish to congratulate her on new role. We have known Shoair since she joined Tate Modern in 2008 and worked alongside Simon Baker, and we then continued to follow her work during her five year tenure as the Director of Photoworks in Brighton. We are sure there will be some fascinating changes to The Photographers' Gallery program.
I very much look forward to seeing you in the coming months.
