The Brooklyn Bridge Park Fence will soon be showcasing several new photographs from a select group of photographers. Representatives from United Photo Industries, Photo District News, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and their newest partner, Flash Forward Festival, had the task of reviewing thousands of photo submissions and handpicked work from these artists to be included on the park’s 1,000-foot fence.

This is the second year photographs will be curated for the outdoor photo exhibition and it will be on display all summer long, leading up to PHOTOVILLE, which runs from September 19 to 29, 2013. In addition to the Brooklyn Bridge Park Fence, there will also be 415-foot version of The Fence put up along the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston.
