We’re Moving!!

Dear Friends,

After four incredible years at our burgeoning HQ at 111 Front Street, we are excited to announce our imminent move to a new ground floor gallery space at the heart of DUMBO. Located at the Stable Building at 16 Main Street, this marks an exciting new chapter for United Photo Industries in our mission to showcase and support emerging and mid-career photographers.

Over the coming weeks, the UPI team will be hard at work prepping our new space, finalizing programming for the 2015 edition of Photoville, and getting ready to kick off the 2015/2016 season at the new UPI Gallery.

With love and peace,

The UPI Team

With an unwavering focus on providing exhibition opportunities to emerging and mid-career lens-based artists, we’ve been privileged to present more than 23 separate shows and over 90 artists since opening the doors of our burgeoning Gallery Headquarters in 2011.

Photography in Public Spaces


Since its inception, United Photo Industries has been committed to presenting compelling photographic works in public areas. Shipping containers, fence lines, free-standing mobile displays, and boats are just a few of the many ways we continue to conjure and explore opportunities to bring photography to the public eye.

Special Projects


Special projects hold a revered place in the UPI pantheon of exhibition opportunities. In our perpetual search for new audiences and new opportunities for artistic cross-pollination, these are the projects that take us around the world. International photo festivals, photography film premieres, juried invitationals, cutting edge installations – the UPI team never turns down an opportunity to create a bridge between photographers and audiences the world over.

Educational Programming


With the twin goals of developing students’ practical photography skills as well as their personal voice as visual story-tellers, UPI coordinates a series of photographic residencies aimed at middle & high school students throughout the year – in partnership with local arts & education organizations.

Focused on conveying a deep understanding and appreciation of the raw power of the photographic practice, UPI’s photographic residencies provide students with the necessary impetus to push past their comfort zone, experiment in their approach, and interact with subjects from all walks of life – important stepping stones in the development of their visual language.


Save the Dave!

Once again, PHOTOVILLE will be returning to its premiere location along the New York waterfront, so mark your calendars and prepare to join us in Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 5 Uplands to walk amongst 60+ shipping containers filled with photography from artists and curatorial partners from across the world!

We’re excited to see what our community has in store for us this year so sharpen your pencils, start sketching some plans and get ready to share your ideas, and thoughts with us!
