Photoville NYC opened in Brooklyn Bridge Park on Thursday. The pop up village is made up of a collection of shipping containers. Inside each container is a different exhibit of photography.

While much of the work isn’t distinctly a technical outlet, the beautiful use of the medium is often digital enough a story to catch Technically Brooklyn’s eye.

According to its website, it takes up over 60,000 square feet. Photoville is a project of Brooklyn Bridge Park and United Photo Industries, in its second year.

Among the many exhibitions at the event was one curated by the editors of Time‘s Lightbox blog, “Disco Night Sept. 11th.” The exhibit is made up of Peter van Agtmael’s war photography from 2006-2013, displayed on lightboxes. Time is also showing their latest film from Red Border Films in the space.

Another lightbox exhibition at the show was one of the only exhibits to show outside a shipping container. Linka Odom’s “Aaj Tak” depicts photos of modern India. The phrase it is named for means “’til today.” The photos were displayed on stands with two lightboxes back to back.

If you go to Photoville, Technically Brooklyn recommends going after nightfall. If you have old printed photographs around that you don’t really want anymore, The Depository of Unwanted Photographs would be glad to take them from you. They might even get shown.
