Wednesday, May 16th-Sunday, May 20th: New York Photo Festival 2012

NYPH’12 will explore the matrix of art photography and social documentary through four curators creating sites and live events exploring the origins and meeting points of art photography and documentary work.

Designed to be an American counterpart and thematic successor to the prestigious European photo festivals Les Rencontres d’Arles, PHotoEspana, and Visa pour l’Image, the New York Photo Festival creates an international atmosphere of inspiring visual installations, professional and aficionado fellowship and camaraderie, and news-worthy staged presentations, awards ceremonies, and live events over the course of four-and-a-half days during the busiest photography month in New York City.
