Brook S. Mason gives the sales data on AIPAD in The Art Newspaper:
Overall, price points seemed lower for iconic vintage work.
- At the Carmel, California Weston Gallery, a New York collector bagged a Paul Strand platinum print, Hacienda, Taos, New Mexico, 1921 for $70,000.
- Plucked off the stand of Manhattan dealer Lawrence Miller by a Mid-West museum was a Julia Margaret Cameron albumen print Shadow of the Cross, 1865 for $25,000. […] Miller […] racked up 14 other sales including images by Helen Levitt, Robert Frank and Ray Metzger.
- Collectors zeroed in on Robert Polidori’s evocative “Versailles” series with the Fifth Avenue Edwynn Houk Gallery. The photographer’s Portrait of Marie Antoinette, 1991 for $25,000 were already sold, as were images by Stephen Shore.
Especially prized was major work powered with LEDs and other technology, demonstrating that collectors have abandoned their sense of caution about newer materials.

- Shirley Shor’s computer generated Self Portrait also from an edition of three for $20,000.
- Korean artist Airan Kang’s whimsical reproduction of books in Lucite lit by LEDs, a play on the notion of illuminated manuscripts in blinding lime green and magenta pink, were a hit scoring multiple sales—one based on a Richard Prince catalogue was snapped up at $4,500
