Mark Your Calendars: Photoville is Returning to Brooklyn In September
Returning for a seventh year, Photoville is a pop-up photography event featuring 85 disparate exhibitions highlighting the work of over 500 photographers that will be open in the Brooklyn Bride Park from September 13 to 23. Produced by United Photo Industries, the exhibitions will be housed in and on shipping containers. Programming will include nighttime projections, panel discussions, publishers and gear demonstrations, and an education day for New York City middle and high-school students.
Notable exhibitions include the 2018 PDN 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch, which of course, is organized by our sister publication. For more information on the show, visit PDN Pulse.
Other exhibitions include “Attacks on the Press: Mexico,” a show organized by the Bronx Documentary Center that features the work of four Mexican photographers. Mexico is one of the most dangerous places in the world to work as a journalist or photojournalist. In the past seven years, the Committee to Protect Journalists has documented over 50 Mexican journalists either killed or gone missing. In an age where the freedom of the press is under attack as never before, the images in the exhibition are, to say the least, timely.
