Publisher's Description
Founded by Daniel Power and Frank Evers, and a joint initiative of powerHouse Books and VII Photo Agency, the New York Photo Festival was the first international-level festival of photography to be based in the U.S., with the ambition of documenting the future of photography in all its forms. For the inaugural edition (May 14-18, 2008) of this new annual event, a group of internationally respected curators was selected to deliver their personal visions of the newest and most important trends in contemporary photography: Magnum photographer Martin Parr, The New York Times Magazine picture editor Kathy Ryan, Lesley A. Martin of the Aperture Foundation, and Tim Barber of tinyvices.com. The New York Photo Festival will be headquartered in DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY.

Magnum Photographer Martin Parr’s exhibit, New Typologies, highlights the use of the photographic series as an attempt to bring order to the chaos around us. The show features the work of WassinkLundgren, Donovan Wylie, Jeffrey Milstein, Jan Banning, Sarah Pickering, Ananké Asseff, Michel Campeau, and Jan Kempenaers.

Kathy Ryan looks at the sculptural and painterly qualities of recent photography in Chisel. The exhibit includes new works by Roger Ballen, Horacio Salinas, Stephen Gill, Katherine Wolkoff, Julian Faulhaber, Lars Tunbjörk, Alejandra Laviada, Andreas Gefeller, Simon Norfolk, and Raphaël Dallaporta. Ryan has pioneered the combination of fine art photography with journalism, commissioning photographers including Nan Goldin, Lee Friedlander, Taryn Simon, Ryan McGinley, Gregory Crewdson, Massimo Vitali, Thomas Struth, Paolo Pellegrin, Lynsey Addario, Gilles Peress, Eugene Richards, and Dan Winters.
