The New York Photo Festival 2010, May 13-16

The New York Photo Festival (NYPH) grew out of a simple and stark conundrum: New York City, the world’s capital of photography, had no major photography festival. In fact, there was no American counterpart to the prestigious festivals of Europe. To fill the void, Daniel Power of powerHouse Books and Frank Evers of VII Photo Agency - both based in the creative hotbed of DUMBO, Brooklyn - founded the New York Photo Festival in 2008. After debuting to international acclaim, the festival grew in 2009, in spite of the recession. The increasing success, especially given the circumstances, has affirmed the vital demand for the New York Photo Festival, as well as its staying power. The third annual festival will take place May 12-16, 2010 with expanded programming, more locations across the city, and extended hours. (copied from the NYPH 2010 press release)
