Photoville NYC 2019 is open as of yesterday, September 12th, in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The weather wasn’t perfect, but the rest of the weekend should be fine for the show.
Like FIGMENT NYC, Photoville brings artistic innovation and original design to New York City.
“PHOTOVILLE is New York City’s FREE premier photo destination. Produced by United Photo Industries, the annual festival is a modular venue built from re-purposed shipping containers. By creating a physical platform for photographers of all stripes to come together and interact, Photoville provides a unique opportunity to engage with a diverse audience — a veritable cross-section of the world’s photographic community.”PHOTOVILLE website.
But Photoville is more than a place to see photography on display. Located in scenic Brooklyn Bridge Park, one jewel a string of new waterfront parks in New York.
Nighttime projection programs, workshops and even an education day for school kids also enliven the weekend.
