The 5th anniversary of Photoville


The fifth annual Photoville starts today in a new location, at the picturesque Brooklyn Bridge Plaza, and will run from September 21 to 25. United Photo Industries (UPI) and their team transformed the new site—located in Brooklyn Bridge Park beneath the majestic span of the Brooklyn Bridge—into an immersive photography village populated by 55+ shipping containers repurposed into galleries. In addition to exhibitions in and on the containers, Photoville offers nighttime projection programs; hands-on workshops; panel discussions; tents with vendors, publishers and gear demonstrators; and a beer garden with a range of food vendors by Smorgasburg, with Brooklyn Brewery beers. Photoville is open to the public      of all ages, dogs included—free of charge, making it unlike any other photo festival in the world.

In the short time since its inception in 2012, Photoville has become the largest annual photographic event in New York City, and one of the most attended photographic events nationwide. Last year Photoville drew over 72,000 visitors, industry professionals and general public alike—providing participating photographers an unparalleled opportunity to have their work seen. No other museum, gallery or festival exposes work by such a wide range of artists and photojournalists to so many people in so little time, for free. This year, exhibitors include photographers Ron Haviv, Mark Robinson, Bill Cunningham, Mark Peterson, Daniella Zalcman and more, with curations by ASMP, United Photo Industries, Open Society Foundations, The New York Times and more.
