A massive celebration of photography is coming to the base of the Brooklyn Bridge this month as Photoville returns to Brooklyn for its sixth consecutive year.
The festival will include more than 55 shipping containers turned into galleries featuring work from photographers around the globe. The exhibitions this year cover a wide array of photographic subjects — including historic images of housing from the New York City Municipal Archives and student work documenting the neighborhoods now connected by the NYC Ferry.
In addition to the exhibits there will also be slate of programs, talks and workshops. There’s an education day for students sponsored by the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and three days of panel discussions at nearby St. Ann’s Warehouse. The beer garden is also returning this year, with beer from Brooklyn Brewery and Smorgasburg food vendors.
Photoville will run from September 13-17 and September 21-24 at Brooklyn Bridge Plaza in Brooklyn Bridge Park. The event is free for all, with a suggested donation of $5. The event opens at 4 p.m. on September 13 and 12 p.m. every other day — closing times vary. For more information and the full slate of hours of operation, check out the Photoville site here.
