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 fifth edition (2016) in Brooklyn Bridge Park, welcomed over 83,000 visitors.
Working with more than 80 curatorial partners such as Instagram, The New York Times, , National Geographic, The Pulitzer Center, the Magnum Foundation, and so many more, Photoville exhibits work by 400+ visual artists annually. Comprised of 70+ exhibitions, 35 talks and workshops, and four night-time 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.
