[ Wow, what a phenomenal two weeks! ]
More than 90,000 visitors came to Photoville in the incredible Brooklyn Bridge Park this year and we were absolutely blown away by the crowds under the bridge.
We are so grateful to each and every one of you for visiting, whether you’re a certified Photovillain who’s come year after year, or a new addition to the Photoville family. Thank you for coming to our exhibitions, talks, workshops and evening programs; for thoughtfully engaging with countless stories and for eagerly conversing with friends old and new. Your time here is a true testament to the power of visual storytelling and its ability to open minds and hearts.
We also want to thank our amazing programming partners, who generously brought their ideas and creativity to Photoville. Thank you to all our photographers, curators and writers for your thought-provoking and inspiring photography projects; to all our panel presenters for sharing your experiences; to all our workshop teachers for teaching us new hands-on skills; to all our walking tour guides for generously offering your personal insights and experiences; to all the artists, schools and organizations that participated in Education Day; and to our best friends Smorgasburg, Brooklyn Brewery, and all our wonderful food vendors who kept everyone well-fed, “hydrated” and happy through it all!
Lots of love,
Sam, Dave, Laura, Gilbert, and the entire Photoville Team
(who all say “thank you” and “until next year!”)
