BROOKLYN HEIGHTS — An outdoor 1,250-foot long photo installation that features the work of 40 photographers is now open to visitors in Brooklyn Bridge Park, organizers said.
"The Fence," now in its fourth year, stretches from the north end of the park in DUMBO to Pier 5 at Joralemon Street, according to United Photo Industries, the group that organizes the exhibit.
UPI also puts together "Photoville," a popular event featuring 55 shipping containers that are converted into photo galleries along with lectures and workshops. Photoville will take place from Sept. 10th to 20th this year.
The photos for "The Fence," which will be on display until the end of Photoville, are selected by a jury of 42 photography and art professionals, according to a press release.
UPI principles Sam Barzilay, Laura Roumanos and Dave Shelley will lead a tour and celebration of the "The Fence" on July 23 at 6 p.m.
