Inaugural NY Photo Festival tomorrow thru sunday

NEW YORK PHOTO FESTIVAL 2008: the First International Photography Festival in the United States

Founded by Daniel Power and Frank Evers, and a joint initiative of powerHouse Books and VII Photo Agency, The New York Photo Festival will be the first international-level Festival of photography to be based in the U.S., with the ambition of documenting the future of photography in all its forms. For the inaugural edition (May 14-18, 2008) of this new annual event, a group of internationally respected curators have been selected to deliver their personal vision of the newest and most important trends in contemporary photography: Magnum photographer Martin Parr, The New York Times Magazine picture editor Kathy Ryan, Lesley A. Martin of the Aperture Foundation, and Tim Barber of tinyvices.com. 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, portfolio reviews, slide shows, book signings, photographic workshops, live performances and events, and a gallery row. The New York Photo Festival will be headquartered in DUMBO.
