BROOKLYN, NY.- United Photo Industries announces artists, programming and vendors for the inaugural Photoville in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Free and open to the public, Photoville is part country-fair, part photography event whose centerpiece is over 30 shipping containers of exhibition space showcasing international and local talent. Photoville also includes public talks, hands-on workshops, nighttime projections and a photo dog run along with a summer food & beer garden, creating a photographic destination like no other.

Photoville will take place at the uplands of Pier 3 at Brooklyn Bridge Park, rain or shine, from June 22—July 1. Admission is free. Photoville will be open June 22, 28, and 29 from 4pm–10pm; June 23 and 30 from 11am–10pm; and June 24 and July 1 from 11am–7pm. The public is encouraged to enter Brooklyn Bridge Park at the foot of Old Fulton Street at the waterfront and to then walk south to the uplands of Pier 3.

Over 30 shipping containers will house photographic exhibitions from around the world. Participating artists and organizations include:

The exhibition is all about discovery -- of emerging music photographers who are just beginning to refine their craft and their personal voice; of accomplished photographers who are only now making their work available as fine art for the first time; of unseen works that were shot decades ago but never published but more than stand the test of time. The exhibition features a body of outstanding music photography by 25 photographers who are represented by Rock Paper Photo. The featured prints span all decades from the 1960s to the present. Each print is hand-signed by the photographer and available for sale as a limited edition.
