Photoville is about to launch its 2015 incarnation. This free exhibition of exceptional photography from around the globe is a must-see for anyone in the NYC area. 72 shipping containers in Brooklyn Bridge Park will be converted into mini photo galleries.

The creation of Sam Barzilay, Laura Roumanos and Dave Shelley, under the umbrella of United Photo Industries, Photoville has become the largest photographic event in New York city. United Photo Industries have kept the quality level high, as stated on their web page they have provided exhibitions and programing by the following:

“Instagram, The NY Times, TIME Magazine, National Geographic, The Pulitzer Center, the Magnum Foundation, and so many more, Photoville exhibited work by 400 visual artists. Comprised of 62 exhibitions, 45 talks & workshops, 7 night-time events in an outdoor beer garden,…”

Notable exhibitions I am directly involved with are Ruddy Roye, When Living is a Protest,  Debi Cornwall, Gitmo at Home, Gitmo at Play, (Gitmo on Sale), and in the Leica / Digital Silver Imaging container, Mark Mann, Luminaries.

I will be working the Leica / Digital Silver Imaging container #43,  9/10-9/13/15. Stop by and say hello. Photoville is free and open to the public 9/10-9/13/15, and  9/19-9/20/15.

Robert Adams is often referred to as, “the greatest living American photographer.” Adam’s approach to photographing the rapid transformation of the American Western landscape has influenced and inspired an entire generation of photographers. If you have not had the delight of seeing his work you have one last chance of seeing the amazing retrospective, “The Place We Live,” at the Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland.

Below is a link to an interview with Adam’s from Modern Art Notes Podcast.

If you are in the Los Angeles area (that would be CA, AZ, NV and WA), or need a fantastic weekend workshop then follow the link below to Craig Semetko’s Leica Akademie weekend. Craig is an exceptional photographer and inspiring teacher. This is an opportunity not to be missed.

Not a Leica owner? You do not have to own a Leica to attend a Leica Akademie Workshop. Tom A. Smith, Manager of Leica Akademie North America, will be on hand with the newest Leica equipment for participants to use through out the weekend. I can say that Tom is also a very good photographer and a good guy.
