United Photo Industries (UPI) brings one of its signature initiatives, The Fence, back to Brooklyn. A jury of 42 leading photography and art professionals has selected work by 40 photographers from around the world, which UPI has installed along 1,250 feet of the Greenway of the picturesque Brooklyn Bridge Park. The Fence is open now and will be on view through the end of this year’s edition of UPI’s other signature initiative, Photoville (September 10-20, 2015), a crowd-pleasing pop-up photo destination that UPI creates in and around more than 55 shipping containers in the Park. Sam Barzilay, Laura Roumanos and Dave Shelley—who comprise United Photo Industries—will lead a tour of The Fence, and a day of celebration, Thursday, July 23. The tour will begin at 6pm at Jane’s Carousel..Now in its fourth year, The Fence annually draws 1.5 million visitors while on view at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Following the success of its inaugural iteration, at Brooklyn Bridge Park in 2012, The Fence has rapidly expanded its geographical reach, adding a specially curated exhibit at the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway in Boston in 2013, and a third location at the Atlanta BeltLine in 2014. The Fence provides exposure and career opportunities to participating photographers, while providing unprecedented access to powerful photographic narratives for a wide and diverse audience.
