New York Photo Festival 2009 Kicks Off on Thursday

Exhibitions open May 14 – 17, 10am – 7pm

The New York Photo Festival – the first international-level photo festival in the U.S. returns to Dumbo, Brooklyn. The ambition of NYPH is to document the future of photography in all its forms. This year’s festival features curators William A. Ewing, Chris Boot, Jody Quon, and Jon Levy, and for the first time ever, NYPH will feature the NYPH’09 Review Pavilion: portfolio reviews, staged presentations, masterclass workshops, and a peer lounge.

In addition to the curated pavilions, the festival will offer visitors an extensive range of activities that will generate dialogue and buzz among all the communities of photo professionals, amateurs, students, and aficionados of art and culture: seminars, slide shows, book signings, photographic workshops, live performances and events, and a gallery row. The festival will also be documented online in a regularly updated virtual environment.

Daniel Power, the founder and publisher publishing company powerHouse Books and Frank Evers, formerly the Managing Director of the VII Photo Agency, are the co-chair and co-founders of the New York Photo Festival.
