Photoville is back! New York City’s premier photo destination is an annual festival where photographers from all walks come together and interact while displaying their work in repurposed shipping containers. Returning for its seventh year to Brooklyn Bridge Plaza from September 13-23, 2018. It will host 65+ shipping containers repurposed into galleries.

NYC Ferry will also host one of the hundred exhibits displayed at Photoville this year, with photos produced by Francesa Magnani. The exhibit will be called PEOPLE OF THE FERRY. NYC Ferry will also provide a catalogue of the exhibit, which will be available on NYC Ferry boats during the time of the exhibit.
