ABOUT THE NY PHOTO FESTIVAL:
hotography, one of the most important visual media of our lives, has been surprisingly uncelebrated, particularly in the US. New York City, home to the most influential commercial and fine art photography community, has lacked—until now—
a large-scale event dedicated to photography.
The inaugural New York Photo Festival (May 14–May 18, 2008) promises to deliver a dynamic, high-quality event in what is arguably the photographic capital of the world. The festival will celebrate both contemporary photography and the creative, inspirational talents of the people who produce this work.
The New York Photo Festival will be headquartered in DUMBO, an off-the-beaten-track, but easily accessible neighborhood on the Brooklyn waterfront between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges”
