PHOTOVILLE TALKS (2017)
at St. Ann’s Warehouse 
Presented in partnership with PhotoWings

Produced by United Photo Industries at Photoville 2017
Photoville Talks Producer – Amy Wolff

For the first time in our 6 year history, we’ve had the opportunity to film the amazing talks that took place at St. Ann’s Warehouse during Photoville 2017, thanks to the generous support of our partners at PhotoWings. The team at PhotoWings have a great track record of documenting powerful panels, events and artist talks and making them free to the masses, so it was a natural fit to collaborate with them on creating this educational resource.

 

We are excited to share with you the first set of these thought-provoking, brilliant conversations, and we will continue to release additional videos gradually over the coming months, .
