The exhibition was curated from submissions to the 2017 ASMP Photo Annual. As always, there is a broad range of contributors and thus an interesting variety of work, from architecture to beauty, still life to street, personal and commercial to fine art. This exhibition goes a little way to demonstrating the impressive diversity of the ASMP community.

PHOTOVILLE is New York City’s FREE premier photo destination. Produced by United Photo Industries, the annual festival is a modular venue built from re-purposed shipping containers. By creating a physical platform for photographers of all stripes to come together and interact, Photoville provides a unique opportunity to engage with a diverse audience — a veritable cross-section of the world’s photographic community.
Photoville returns for a sixth year, in picturesque Brooklyn Bridge Plaza, from September 13-24, 2017. Once again, Brooklyn Bridge Plaza—located in Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO beneath the majestic span of the Brooklyn Bridge— will be transformed into an immersive photography village populated by 55+ shipping containers repurposed into galleries.
Working with more than 90 curatorial partners, Photoville exhibits work by over 500 visual artists each year. In addition, the festival offers nighttime projection programs, hands-on workshops, an education day for New York City middle and high-school students (proudly supported by the New York City’s Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment), panel discussions and talks presented next door at St. Ann’s Warehouse, tents with vendors, family-friendly photo activities, publishers and gear demonstrations, a community photo book store run by Red Hook Editions, tintype portraits by the Penumbra Foundation, and a beer garden with a range of food vendors by Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Brewery beers. Photoville is open to the public—all ages, dogs included—free of charge, making it unlike any other photo festival in the world.
