PHOTOVILLE is a new Brooklyn-based photo destination, a pop-up village of freight containers transformed into temporary exhibition spaces, which first took place in the summer of 2012. Photoville featured a feisty mix of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on workshops, night-time projections, a photo dog-run, a camera-flower greenhouse, and a summer beer-garden with food trucks that created a photography destination like no other.

Occupying more than 60,000 sq. feet in the heart of Brooklyn Bridge Park, in its first year Photoville was located on the uplands of Pier 3, along the Brooklyn Waterfront and attracted close to 40,000 visitors over 2 long weekends.

SAVE THE DATE!
PHOTOVILLE will return Brooklyn Bridge Park from September 19–29 on the Uplands of Pier 5′
