IPA was founded as both a networking and exhibition site as well as a high end digital printing site geared speciﬁcally towards mobile photography/art. For over three years IPA has been one of the leaders in presenting mobile work as an art.
In 2014 IPA is moving in a new direction focusing on building relationships with key artists and expanding on their high end digital printing.
NEM and the Kansas City Exhibition are proud to support this new direction.
