This year Photoville once again changed the local landscape of Brooklyn with its’ 1000 ft wall photographic installation THE FENCE. Stretching along the Brooklyn Bridge Park Greenway, photographers were asked to respond to the question “What makes up a community?” through the themes of home, streets, people, creatures, and play. The result is a selection of images from all over the globe, featuring different cultures, religions, and perspectives in a massive installation. With over a million viewers passing the display in 2012, this year THE FENCE expanded in its’ scope with a sister exhibit showing simultaneously in Boston, Massachusetts. We have chosen fifteen of our favorite images to give you a taste of what THE FENCE has to offer.
THE FENCE is a collaboration between United Photo Industries, Photo District News (PDN), Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the Flash Forward Festival.
