Last week our ICP at THE POINT teen class went on a shooting field trip to Brooklyn. It was a hot day but we were equipped with enough water and loads of positive energy to concur the NYC heat! Together we traveled on the train from THE POINT in The Bronx down to the Brooklyn Bridge. Once we got there the students started documenting our walk over the bridge while we walked across to DUMBO.

Once in Brooklyn, we visited United Photo Industries and met with the amazing Laura Roumanos and Sam Barzilay, two of the three co-founders of United Photo Industries and Photoville. Their mission is to bring the photographic community together by presenting photography installations and events in unique locations off the beaten path, where the focus lies in content and is accessible to everyday people from all walks of life. We were lucky enough to also get a sneak peak of the FENCE, which is part of Photoville.
