Why You Should Go to Photoville 2017

Posted by on August 11, 2017 | Contests/Events

One of our favorite fall events is returning to Brooklyn Bridge Park from Steptember 13-24. Photoville will take place among a sprawl of shipping containers along the Brooklyn waterfront, and the wide array from container exhibitions, outdoor installations and nightly events is always a unique experience. The Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Brewery beer garden with tasty food trucks will keep you nourished as you make your way through the maze of photography from leading galleries, publishers, agencies and institutions.
