Photoville NYC

Things to do Free
During the last week of June, shutterbugs big and small are invited to visit the center of Brooklyn Bridge Park to check out a series of photographic displays, talks and workshops, better known as "Photoville." Though the freight container-housed exhibits are targeted primarily at adults and focus on topics such as the experience of prisoners in American jails and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, kids will glean inspiration from “Between Destinations,” which showcases pictures taken through train windows, and can have their portrait snapped at The Center for Alternative Photography’s Tintype Photo Booth (June 24, July 1; 11am-1:30pm, 2:30pm-5pm; $35). On June 24, photographers ages 6 to 12 can participate in the Kiddy Zine Workshop presented by Conveyor Arts, where they'll use photographic images clipped from the New York Times and saddle stitched booklets with blank pages. Kids will also have the chance to create personal zines to take home (11:15am-12:15pm; free). To conclude the day, families can step into the giant Camera Obscura positioned by the Photoville dog run, where they'll learn about camera development by watching moving images projected onto the inside of the container. Free. Ages 6 and up.
