It is organized by photo eye, the established Santa Fe publisher and photography gallery.
“The Art Photo Index is an extraordinary resource designed to be used by the international fine art community. It’s exciting to be included with artists such as Martin Parr and many other highly regarded fine art photographers,” says Steve Giovinco.
Noted photographer Martin Parr says, "API is a new format for viewing and researching for a new generation of photographers, as well as some more familiar names. As the extensive collection of images are all keyworded, it becomes a new index of emerging artists at the cutting edge of art photography.”
