For the second time in a row the International Photo Festival Leiden (IPFL) has organized a satellite exhibition in cooperation with Photoville New York. The work of the 20 selected IPFL-photographers was on show from September 10-20, 2015 in Brooklyn Bridge Park in Brooklyn, New York City. In exchange, the work of 20 American photographers will be on show at the Pieterskerkhof during the International Photo Festival Leiden. The presentation is ‘the American way’: Like in New York, the exhibition takes place in sea containers. The exhibition runs from 10 to October 31, 2015.
Photoville New York
Photoville is one of the largest free photo festivals in the United States and was this year held for the fourth time in Brooklyn Bridge Park. It aims to create a platform where different photographers can show their work to a wide public. There were more than 76,000 visitors to Photoville. They saw the work of 400 photographers, including the 20 selected IPFL-photographers 2015.
The 20 American photographers were selected by the United Photo Industries team (Sam Barzilay, Dave Shelley and Laura Roumanos) with expert guidance from Elizabeth Avedon, Stella Kramer, Jamel Shabazz, and Jerry Vezzuso. Sam Barzilay is very happy with the collaboration with the IPFL. “It means that the work of 20 emerging European photographers was on show in Brooklyn and in addition, the work of the selected group of American photographers gets a new audience on the other side of the Atlantic.”
