Not only have we opted to turn up the heat this festival year, we’re basking in it with Photoville Festival 2022’s return to summer time — a first since 2012. We’re ecstatic about rolling out another year of exceptional photography from across the Globe. For 2022  — Photoville’s 11th consecutive year —  we collaborated with an outstanding group of artists and programming partners to curate and present over 60 outdoor exhibitions in 20 locations across all five boroughs. Expect to experience such an array of visual narratives at Photoville Festival 2022, June 4-26.



We hope that you will be able to view as many exhibits as possible, share your favorites on social, and tag us with the hashtags, #photovillefestival and #photoville2022.
