Photoville’s rustic pop-up village of shipping containers transformed into temporary exhibition spaces, which “adorned” Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 3 last fall, will return September 19–29. And once again, “The Fence,” which drew 1 million visitors over 10 weeks in 2012, will return this summer.
The deadline for Fence photo submissions is coming up—April 15. “Photographers of all levels are invited to submit their best image series that capture the essence of ‘community’ within the categories: home, streets, people, creatures, play.” Images will be judged by “an internationally renowned jury,” with the chosen comprising the 1,000-foot-long Fence. The entry fee is $35 per series (up to 6 images). Pics can be registered and uploaded online.
The Fence in Brooklyn Bridge Park will be unveiled in June “with a rollicking fun party” in the park and will be on view all summer long, leading up to the fall Photoville. Last year’s debut 60,000sf Photoville event featured a mix of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on workshops, night-time projections, a photo dog-run, a camera-flower greenhouse and a beer garden with food trucks.
