If you’re in NYC this summer, be sure to mark your calendars for Photoville! What’s that, you say? Photoville will be a large-scale photographic village with shipping containers converted into gallery spaces in the heart of Brooklyn Bridge Park, right on the Brooklyn Waterfront. There’ll be a mix of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on workshops, nighttime projections, photo dog run, and a summer beer-garden, creating a fun photographic destination for your summer! Read on…
To make the Lomography shipping container the best, we need your help! Submit your photos inspired by or taken in New York City for a chance to be included in the Photoville LomoWall inside our shipping container. Whether it’s the Statue of Liberty or someone sporting a “I Heart New York” shirt in Europe, we want to see them all! Plus, they’ll be in the running for our upcoming Lomography New York City Guide. Be sure to visit us at Photoville for our NYC LomoWall where we’ll also be selling cameras and other goodies, and of course, offering fun summertime workshops to brush up on your photo skills.
