'Photoville' Winds Up Successful Run in Brooklyn Bridge Park

The impressive Photoville exhibit in Brooklyn Bridge Park wound up Sunday, drawing a nice crowd in spite of temperatures in the 90s. Photographs were exhibited in more than 30 repurposed shipping containers, along with lectures, hands-on workshops, and projections. United Photo Industries, based in DUMBO, put on the event.

In “Cruel and Unusual,” photographers showed people living in hell behind prison walls. Works by: Amy Elkins, Brenda Ann Kenneally, Deborah Luster, and Lizzie Sadin.

Beijing-based Sim Chi Yin recreated the tiny living quarters of young workers living underground in Beijing, and exhibited photos from her series "China's Rat Tribe."

Brazilian artist AndrĂ© Feliciano created an installation featuring over 3,000 fabricated “camera flowers" in a greenhouse made just for the show.

While the main exhibition is now over, the 1,000-foot-long photo fence will remain in Brooklyn Bridge Park for much of the summer.
