[ PHOTOVILLE returns to Brooklyn Bridge Park – September 13-24, 2017 ]


Returning to its iconic location at the Brooklyn Bridge Plaza—located in DUMBO’s Brooklyn Bridge Park beneath the majestic span of the Brooklyn Bridge— Photoville will once again create an immersive photography village populated by 55+ shipping containers repurposed into galleries.

Like years before, there will be containers! outdoor exhibitions! talks and workshops! evening projections! Our Smorgasburg Beer Garden and food vendors will return, alongside our nighttime events, and this year we will be more immersed throughout the park than ever before.

The 2017 festival will present five nights of programming in the Beer Garden, numerous hands-on workshops, an education day for New York City middle and high-school students (proudly supported by the New York City’s Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment), three full days of panel discussions and talks presented next door at St. Ann’s Warehouse, tents with family-friendly photo activities, photo publishers, gear demonstrations, a community photo book store run by Red Hook Editions, tintype portraits by the Penumbra Foundation, and a beer garden with a range of food vendors from Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Brewery beers.

As always, Photoville is FREE and open to the public—all ages, dogs included—so we hope to see you there!
