From the very beginning, Photoville was conceived as a glorious experiment in cooperation, collaboration, and international cross-pollination. Nothing makes us happier than to introduce the work of new, talented photographers to a fresh audience – and that is a river that flows both ways. It gives us great joy to be collaborating for a second year with the in this act of cultural exchange.
The twenty North American photographers selected for this special collaboration between Photoville and the Leiden Photo Festival were nominated by the United Photo Industries team (Sam Barzilay, Dave Shelley and Laura Roumanos) with expert guidance from Elizabeth Avedon, Stella Kramer, Jamel Shabazz, and Jerry Vezzuso.
The exhibition – housed in shipping containers outdoors – was on view in Pieterskerkhof Street in Leiden, Netherlands from October 10 to October 31, 2015.
