Contact High Project x PHOTOVILLE — Brooklyn, New York, USA — 13-24 SEP 2017
Brooklyn Bridge Park
Contact High spotlights the photographers who have played critical roles in bringing hip-hop and music culture imagery onto the global stage. Photographers share their era-defining stories’ iconic images, what legendary street photographer Henri Cartier Bresson called ‘The Decisive Moment’. “Contact High” offers a rare glimpse into the creative process and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the imagery that shaped hip-hop and music visual culture. Getting access to the original and unedited contact sheets, we see the ‘big picture’ visual legacy being created. Contact sheets let you look directly through the photographer’s lens and observe all of the other shots taken during these legendary moments. Join in at DUMBO’s Brooklyn Bridge Park beneath the majestic span of the Brooklyn Bridge — Photoville will once again create an immersive photography village populated by 55+ shipping containers repurposed into galleries.
