NEW YORK (PRWEB) September 12, 2019

Seventeen talented photographers from New York Film Academy (NYFA), including students, alumni, and faculty, will be showcasing their work at this year’s Photoville, the annual photo festival held at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The beloved fest opens this evening and will run through September 22.

Photography students studying at the Photo Arts Conservatory at New York Film Academy (PAC at NYFA) are immersed in the industry, and are encouraged to participate in the larger world of photography by attending showcases such as Photoville. This year continues PAC at NYFA’s tradition of exhibiting a diverse array of work at the Brooklyn event.

This year’s NYFA photography exhibit will include art from FAYN, NYFA’s collaborative photography magazine. Produced by PAC at NYFA, FAYN is published three times per year, and features students, faculty, and alumni whose work explores contemporary concepts in art and culture.

“It is incredibly exciting that NYFA will be represented again for the 4th year in a row at Photoville NYC,” shared David Mager, Chair of the Photography Department at NYFA. “This year’s show pulls work from an amazingly diverse group of artists, spanning ideas of race, deconstruction, collage, fashion, and sexuality.”

Among those featured at this year’s Photoville is NYFA alum EnLin Qing. Having attended NYFA’s Photography and Fashion Photography workshops, Qing is a dancer and psychologist, in addition to photographer. He prides himself on his creative process and his ability to draw inspiration both from his environment and the knowledge acquired through his dance and psychology studies.

Photoville, produced by United Photo Industries, is currently in its eighth year. The free festival is built from over 65 repurposed shipping containers to create physical platforms from photographers of all kinds, providing them a unique opportunity to engage audiences with a backdrop of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge.

The NYFA container exhibit at Photoville is curated by David Mager and Joan Pamboukes. On Saturday, September 14, Photoville is conducting a guided tour and visiting the NYFA container from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The following PAC at NYFA photographers are featured at this year’s Photoville festival: Kevin Abangu, Um Kulthoom Alnasri, Angel Chestnut, Juan Sebastián Echeverri, Arthur Hylton, Lotta Lemetti, Jackie Neale, Oluwasegun Oladele-Ajose, EnLin Qing, Mariangela Quiroga-Castillo, Amanda Rowan, Natasha Rudenko, Jennifer Siemsen, Maddie Smith, Katerina Stratos, Edolia Stroud and Tanne Willow.
