The D.C. Antique Photo Show celebrates its 30th annual spring event in 2013, its fifth year run by Diverse Markets Management (DMM), a Washington-based show management firm which also stages the Downtown Holiday Market and other events which include contemporary photography.
Photo Show Manager Tom Rall is a director of DMM and also past manager of The Flea Market at Eastern Market, now also owned by DMM, where he continues to both exhibit antique photography and promote a mix of vintage and contemporary photography at the Capitol Hill venue, as he has for many years. Tom is also a specialist and area expert in photographic lantern slides as well as past convention chair of the Magic Lantern Society of the United States and Canada.
DMM President Michael Berman is an arts impresario and photo collector whose downtown D.C. gallery Caos on F also cooperates with photographers. Both Rall and Berman were pleased to purchase rights to The D.C. Antique Photo Show from Connecticut-based Show Founder Russell Norton shortly after the 2008 show and look forward to growing the event and maintaining its status as the #1 show of its kind in the North East.
