Photoville 2019, the photo festival inside containers under the Brooklyn Bridge

Category:

This year, the Brooklyn Bridge was once again the setting of New York’s most spectacular photo festival, Photoville.

The event unfolds in a truly original format where the exhibition “halls” are built from re-purposed containers of the cargo ships that dock in New York. Over the course of two September weekends, journalists and photo editors pour on this side of the East River to gather at the event.

Not even the rainy inaugural night could dim the participants’ excitement for a schedule featuring presentations and photo walks organized by masters from Leica’s stand, guided tours, talks with authors and over 90 exhibitions.

This year’s edition further explored a variety of themes ranging from social activism and political engagement to fashion and lifestyle. Harmen Meinsma’s space, supported by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York, and Playboy’s area, for example, shared a common empathy and a deep sense of humanity.

Noteworthy were One Day I Will’s youth portraits created by Vincent Tremeau and presented by the United Nations, where girls victims of human right violations were dressed like the people they aspire to become.

Remarkable was also Growing Up Amelia, where photographer Robin Schwartz captured her daughter at various ages with animals.
