Hooray For Hollywood - Photo LA opens to strong sales
So the early reports are in... 2007 Photo LA opened to big crowds and strong sales.
Our MAO spy's were everywhere.. plus many happy dealers have reported in to our news room, that they already completely covered their total fair costs, just in the first few hours of the Photo LA Preview.
So any rumor's that the Art Photography market maybe
about to crash cooling off, show no sign of credibility.
Additionally, last night in the nasty wet cold, we at MAO attended the packed ICP Directors Opening..
Judging by : the insane crowd, the empty bar, the line of 100+ people waiting for coat check, plus when you consider that anyone who's anybody in the art photography world was in LA, we can say interest in Art Photography could never be stronger. WhoooHooo...!! Let the good times roll!
FYI.. The NY Times already has a review by Michael Kimmelman of the new ICP shows...Henri Cartier-Bresson's Scrapbook, and their Martin Munkacsi shows are both wonderful. Congrats to ICP! We even found their cute Louise Brooks Show fun and entertaining.
