What better way to kick off Photoville’s fifth year than with a New York City photographic throw-down in our own home of Brooklyn?
The battle lines have been drawn, guest curators invited, and photographic champions nominated. Presented and produced by the United Photo Industries team and our guest curators: Dr. Deborah Willis (Manhattan – Chair, Department of Photography & Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University), Elizabeth Renstrom (Brooklyn – Photo Editor, VICE), Scott Hall (Queens – Director of Photography, Travel & Leisure Magazine), Michael Kamber (the Bronx – Co-founder, Bronx Documentary Center), and Paul Moakley (Staten Island – Deputy Director of Photography, TIME Magazine).
Join us for a thrilling show of photographic sportsmanship, capturing images from across New York City’s neighborhoods, from the most iconic to the most underrepresented stories across Brooklyn, Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens and Staten Island.
Each borough will be represented through the curated work of seven photographers featuring local projects and curated beats, to be screened during a very special night at our Beer Garden in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge.
At the end of the night, there will be no winners or losers, no crowns or belts, just wonderful, shared, crazy, love for this city like no other, which we call our home. New York City!
