August 24 / 16
Hello again. One final post for today. Photoville is coming…..here’s are the details…….
PHOTOVILLE 2016 / SEPTEMBER 21 – 25, 2016 / BROOKLYN BRIDGE PARK
What is Photoville?
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.
Immersion and interactivity are at the heart of what makes Photoville such a successful and popular event, allowing it to become the largest annual photographic event in New York City and among the most-attended photographic events nationwide. Photoville’s fourth edition (2015) in Brooklyn Bridge Park, welcomed over 72,000 visitors.
Working with more than 80 curatorial partners such as Instagram, The New York Times, TIME Magazine, National Geographic, The Pulitzer Center, the Magnum Foundation, and so many more, Photoville exhibits work by 400+ visual artists annually. Comprised of 60+ exhibitions, 35 talks and workshops, and four nighttime events in an outdoor beer garden, Photoville remains entirely FREE to attend, offering visitors a unique opportunity to experience thought-provoking, challenging, and exceptional photography from across the globe.
There will be lots of activities going on at Photoville such as walking tours, workshops, panels, and other great stuff. It’s free to the public so you don’t need to buy a ticket, of course it is encouraged to donate $5. Just $5 dollars, is that hard to do?

Your mission for the rest of this day: Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday and be blessed!
