A Photo Walk Among The Shipping Containers – Photoville 2014

Repurposing shipping containers into rooms of photo exhibits, Photoville, in its 3rd year in Brooklyn Bridge Park offers a wide range of high quality, thought-provoking and beautiful images from professional and emerging photographers from across the globe.

This two-week photo showcase, with various exhibits, some interactive as well as talks by various photographers ends today (9/28) and is well-worth visiting.

Three exhibits that stood out to and are worth checking out either at the event or online:

  • La Frontera – By Stefan Falke, who portrays artists living along the U.S/Mexican border near the border fence and the vibrant artists in that area.
  • Tunnel People – Toen Voeten, an award-winning war photographer, lived among a homeless community under Riverside Park in an Amtrak train tunnel, documenting their lives.
  • Portraits by Delphine Diallo, whose exhibit of black and white portraits is highly engaging. PDN has named, this French-Senegalese photographer as one of the 30 new and emerging photographers to watch.

Here are a few images from Photoville. If you’re in the NYC area today, get out there and enjoy the last day of this great photo village!

Art Gallery in a Shipping Container (Welcome to Photoville!)

For the past 10 days, an unused portion of the Brooklyn, NY waterfront in Brooklyn Bridge Park became a pop-up photo gallery in a bunch of shipping freight containers.

Photoville, which started last year by United Photo Industries, an art presentation organization, showcases a variety of photographers’ images, from photojournalists, students and more. Of note was an exhibition of photojournalism in war zones in the Middle East and Africa, some shot by the late Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros, who were killed in a mortar attack last year while photographing the rebel uprising in Libya. There’s also a nice “beer garden” with food and drinks to sit back and enjoy the Lower Manhattan skyline

This is an exhibition truly worth checking next year for both its unique venue and great photography.
