A crowd-pleasing photo destination, Photoville is a pop-up village of shipping containers repurposed into galleries, showing a wide array of cutting edge photography. Contained within over 60,000 sq. ft. in the heart of Brooklyn Bridge Park, Photoville features a feisty mix of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on workshops, night-time projections, a camera-flower installation, and a summer beer-garden complete with food trucks, creating a photography destination like no other and free for the public to attend.

Sam Barzilay, Dave Shelley and Laura Roumanos launched United Photo Industries, a Brooklyn-based, photographic art-presenting cooperative in 2011. From a burgeoning gallery headquarters at 16 Main Street in DUMBO, they have been working with the ambition and energy of an idealist start-up to identify, harness, and conjure unexpected exhibition opportunities, champion new directions in photography and cultivate ties within an ever-expanding, globe-trotting community of photographers. Their work has been featured in Brooklyn throughout DUMBO, Manhattan’s Financial District, Boston (MA), Atlanta (GA), Santa Fe (NM), Houston (TX), Athens (Greece), Berlin and Hamburg (Germany), Sydney (Australia), Shanghai (China), Cambridge (UK), Lodz (Poland), and in Tokyo (Japan) as co-founders of the Tokyo International Photography Festival.
