Contemporary Fine Art Photography at the Armory Show 2012

Contemporary fine art photography was around at the Armory Show 2012, but seemingly less so than usual.  Some or most of the blue chips galleries were absent this time around, and are perhaps waiting for the Frieze Art Fair in May.  Some fine art photography highlights include:

  • Roe Ethridge’s oddly diverse photographs of well made casual nothingness at Andrew Kreps.

  • Yossi Milo has military troops in repose by photographer Tim Hetherington, as well as others Pieter Hugo’s photographs of Africa.  
  • Bruce Silverstein, on the Contemporary side of the Armory had  a few night photos by Todd Hido including one of an array of cars parked in front of an eerily normal but moody suburban house, and a wall of Philly photographs by Zoe Leonard.
  • A great vintage corner at Howard Greenberg with Robert Frank, Bruce Davidson, and Weegees.
  • Canadian photo dealer Corkin Gallery made it to main floor with some vintage and some contemporary photos including Bernice Abbot.
  • Kang Houng-Goo at One and J Gallery quietly intriguing landscape photos.
  • There were a few Cindy Sherman’s too, as might be expected given her recent show at MoMA.
  • Kiki Smith dominates Galleria Lorcan O’Neill’s booth.
