The pandemic has changed the way we live and interact, as well as the way we see people, places, and things. These portraits represent the community and reconstruction of society, along with isolation and reunion.

I.S. 318 is a public middle school located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It is known as an academy of arts and sciences. We are one of the few schools in New York City that has a full traditional photography lab and darkroom. We also have traditional fine arts, and an amazing performing arts department in dance and concert band.
Founded in 2011 in Brooklyn, NY, Photoville was built on the principles of addressing cultural equity and inclusion, which we are always striving for, by ensuring that the artists we exhibit are diverse in gender, class, and race.
In pursuit of its mission, Photoville produces an annual, city-wide open air photography festival in New York City, a wide range of free educational community initiatives, and a nationwide program of public art exhibitions.
By activating public spaces, amplifying visual storytellers, and creating unique and highly innovative exhibition and programming environments, we join the cause of nurturing a new lens of representation.
Through creative partnerships with festivals, city agencies, and other nonprofit organizations, Photoville offers visual storytellers, educators, and students financial support, mentorship, and promotional & production resources, on a range of exhibition opportunities.
