Photoville 2013 is a 74,000 sq. ft. photography-focused pop up village in Brooklyn, New York that fills more than 45 shipping containers repurposed into photo & multi-media galleries. Photoville features over 40 exhibitions from great names such as Ann Curry of NBC, Tyler Hicks of the New York Times, Carolyn Cole from LA Times, Donald Weber and the late Chris Hondros. There are lectures, hands-on workshops, night-time screenings, a camera-flower installation by Brazilian artist André Feliciano—all free and wrapping around a summer beer-garden complete with food trucks. This second annual edition of the festival is substantially bigger than the inaugural Photoville, which was presented last summer and drew over 40,000 visitors to Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Photoville 2013 is taking place on the Uplands of Pier 5 in Brooklyn Bridge Park and runs until Sunday September 29th. It's organized by United Photo Industries, a Brooklyn-based photographic art-presenting organization who produces unique, site-specific exhibitions, installations and events that demonstrate the universal power of photography.
