More than 55 photo exhibitions & outdoor installations from around the world addressing a wide range of issues, displayed in and around repurposed shipping containers. That just has to be cool! A unique venue for photographers and audiences to connect through the power of visual storytelling, presented by Photoville. One of the largest photographic events in New York City.
One of the programming partners is The International Photo Festival Leiden from The Netherlands. The International Photo Festival Leiden showcases 20 new photography talents from the European Union with less than five years professional experience. These talents are selected by an expert jury, which also awards one winner a cash prize to help further their career. To propel their work into the professional world, their work will travel to several international photography festivals over the course of one year. The mix of countries, experience and work is inspirational for professionals, as well as students and photography lovers.
But there is more, like the Photoville Beer Garden, a partnership with Brooklyn Brewery - the official beer of Photoville (yes you read that correct, a photofestival with an official beer). And Brooklyn's favorite foodie heaven and Photo partner, Smorgasburg. Drink, eat, share stories and pictures and view amazing work ... I'll drink to that.
And when you're done with the still images of other people's lifes and are ready for some action, just move yourself around the rest of the Brooklyn Bridge Park. It's a beautiful park and there are all sorts of events out on the piers. You can rent a bike and follow the bikepath all the way into Red Hook. Or follow us on a 'cannot mis' route for a bikeride through Brooklyn.
Photoville 2017 will take place from 13–17 and 21-24 September. Located in Dumbo's Brooklyn Bridge Park beneath the majestic span of the Brooklyn Bridge. As always, Photoville is free and open to the public—all ages, dogs included.
