Welcome to Photoville L.A.

by Christopher Andrew Armstrong

New York City’s harsh winter weather often results in an influx of transplants to Los Angeles, and we’ve received another one. Photoville, New York’s largest photography event, makes it’s Los Angeles premiere this weekend at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Century City. And best of all, its free and open to the public.

The event, imagined by the Brooklyn-based public art nonprofit United Photo Industries, takes place over the course of two weekends and includes over 55 exhibition and installations, from photographers both local and international. There will also be a rotating cast of events and workshops from company’s such as National Geographic and ESPN, nighttime screenings, and a community beer garden.

Photoville was co-founded by Sam Barzilay, Dave Shelley, and Laura Roumanos in Brooklyn, New York, where it has been held annually for the past nine years. The event takes place from April 26th-28th and again on May 3rd-5th.
