Photoville, the pop-up photo destination like no other, kicks off this week and there is no shortage of things to do and see—we’re talking 47 exhibitions and installations, 51 talks and workshops, and 7 nighttime events. Now in its second year and brought to you by United Photo Industries, Photoville opens its gates this Thursday, September 19 and runs through Sunday, September 29. We decided to compile a list of our top 15 exhibitions, panels, and events at this year’s festival.
After last year’s successful collaboration with Boston’s Flash Forward Festival, this year The Fence, the unique, site-specific and outdoor photographic exhibition brought to you by the fine folks at United Photo Industries, expands to a third location, Atlanta, teaming up with Atlanta Celebrates Photography. This year photographers from around the world have the opportunity to submit work to be considered for all three exhibition locations—NYC, Boston, and Atlanta—all through one submission.
Photographers are invited to submit their best image series that captures the essence of ‘community,’ exploring one or more of these categories: home, people, streets, creatures, or play. Work will be reviewed by an internationally renowned jury of over 30 photography professionals from all corners of the art world.
With an expected audience of over 1.5 million people, The Fence provides unprecedented visibility and opportunities for photographers, so don’t miss out—submit here.
