New York Photo Festival
New York City is finally getting its very own major photo festival with the inaugural New York Photo Festival on May 14-18, 2008. Despite its countless galleries, photo agencies, studios, history of magazine publishing and reputation for breeding leading photographers, New York lacked its own a major festival of photography, but powerHouse Books and VII Photo Agency are launching the new, annual New York Photo Festival, and the first international-level festival of photography to be based in the U.S.
The New York Photo Festival will be headquartered in DUMBO, an easily accessible neighborhood on the Brooklyn waterfront between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.
