Visitors were still touring exhibits at the first New York Photo Festival when its organizers announced plans for next year’s festival, scheduled to take place May 14 to 24, 2009.. (read the full story in Photo District News).
The first international photography festival in the United States, New York Photo Festival in Dumbo… 3,600 entries, miles of photographs … and I almost gave up.
Look out for my, absolutely biased, report from the festival … and yes, I am trying to gain a perspective … so today I am just posting a few links for you.
