Visiting the Armory Show New York, Looking for Photography. This is What I Saw, Mostly

Visiting the Armory Show New York, Looking for Photography. This is What I Saw, Mostly

Finding Photography at the Armory Show New York 2018 and Other Things

This is not a review, just a thought and some of the work I saw that I liked, mostly photography.

Generally, photography was less predominate and more diverse. Most of the work seemed to be concentrated in a few photo-centric galleries, unlike last shows, where prints were spread throughout. But what was there were by African artists, a few stalwarts, and some less-monumental subjects. Perhaps a return to documentation of the world around us?

I also was drawn to some paintings.
