Imagine a small city devoted entirely to showcasing the work of both established and emerging photographers around the globe, and you have Photoville, the largest yearly photography event in New York City. With a predicted 80,000 visitors, Photoville 2014 promises a diverse and engaging collection of photojournalism, fine art, editorial, student photography and more. In the gorgeous setting of the Brooklyn Bridge Park overlooking the East River, hundreds of artists will participate in exhibitions installed in over 50 readapted shipping containers and outdoor exhibitions. Additionally, Photoville will present talks, discussions, and workshops by artists and curators on issues affecting contemporary photo professionals.
Feature Shoot is excited to present Reframe: An Exploration of Memory and Nostalgia at Photoville 2014, an exhibition that questions our belief in what was and re-interprets what can be learned from the past. Curated by Alison Zavos, Jenna Garrett, and Amanda Gorence, Reframe transforms the gallery space into a fully immersive experience designed by Czech artist BIBIANA. Artists include Amy Friend, Audrée Anid, Joachim Fleinert, Bianca Morra, Evie Woltil Richner, Sarah Steffen, Jennifer Greenburg, Faye Hobson, Lisa Kokin and Diane Meyer.
Photoville opens September 18 and runs until September 28, 2014 at Pier 5 in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Photoville is organized and founded by United Photo Industries.
