In 2003, during one of the worst blizzards to hit NYC, a friend of the publisher, David Spivak, called him to offer him his tickets to the AIPAD Photography Show because he was unable to make it to New York City due to the blizzard. Launched in 1980, the AIPAD Photography is an art fair in New York City that exhibits hundreds of photographers from all over the world. Mr. Spivak, an avid connoisseur of the arts, graciously accepted. The rest, as they say, is history.
