United Photo Industries, Photo District News (PDN), Brooklyn Bridge Park and Flash Forward Festival have joined forces to produce The Fence, a curated annual summer-long outdoor photo exhibition that drew more than one million visitors to Brooklyn Bridge Park during its first 10-week run in 2012.

This year, in addition to the 1,000-foot photographic summer installation in Brooklyn Bridge Park, there will also be a specially curated version of The Fence along the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston. Jurors from the Boston and New York arts communities have selected work by photographers from all over the country who have sent in series of photographs that best capture the essence of “community,” in the categories of Home, Streets, People, Creatures and Play.

The Fence presents the work of 40 talented photographers from around the world to a combined audience of over 1.5 million visitors each summer. Please visit for more information.
