A nice little blurb about our participation at Aipad 2018
Making its debut at AIPAD, Copenhagen’s In the Gallery brought with it the impressionistic work of Danish photographer Jacob Gils. For these pieces, Gils made a series of exposures from different vantage points, superimposing one picture on top of another until each work’s subject—a tree in one, a Santa Monica beach house in another—appears to dissolve. “I used to be a fashion photographer 15 years ago, and when I was shooting fashion everything was perfect: perfect models, the perfect places, [a lot of] Photoshop[ping],” Gils said. “So when I started to make my art, I wanted something that wasn’t perfect.” The gallery said that Gils’s photograph Santa Monica #1 (2017) had been put on reserve before the fair opened, but declined to give its price. A larger version was available for $48,000. Copenhagen #21, a smaller work, had sold before the fair opened for about $2,200.

Any new galleries this year? Please talk about them and the reasons they have been included.
Some of the galleries that will be participating this year for the very first time are 6×7 Gallery Warsaw, Warsaw; Galerie SIT DOWN, Paris; In The Gallery, Copenhagen; Jean-Kenta Gauthier, Paris; MEM, Tokyo; Paul Nicklen Gallery, New York; Sears-Peyton Gallery, New York; and Senior & Shopmaker Gallery, New York, to mention a few. And for very simple reasons they have been included for the show are that they maintain ethical standards, promote communication within the photographic community, encourage public appreciation of photography as art, and work to enhance the confidence of the public in responsible photography, providing exhibitions, appraisals, expert opinions, and consultations. Above all, they show great work!
