Fine Art Photography and the Lack of it at Frieze New York The serpentine tents of Frieze New York arrived again–now the premiere art fair in all the land–yet there seemed to be less photography than usual. Is this a trend? A foreboding one, a harbinger of things to come, or just part of the
Frieze New York Art Fair: Where’s the Photography?
