United Photo Industries Presents: The Fence Brooklyn

United Photo Industries (UPI), the pioneering Brooklyn-based producer of public photography installations and events, is pleased to announce the fifth edition of one of its signature initiatives, The Fence.

Photographers from around the globe were invited to submit photographic series that explore various aspects of 'community' for consideration to be featured on this outdoor exhibition series. A jury of 45 leading photography and art professionals selected work by 40 photographers that are currently featured. In 2016, The Fence added the Railyard Art Park in Sante Fe to its roster of exhibition locations, which already includes Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York City, the Atlanta Beltline, and public spaces in Boston and Houston. 

Please join us for the opening celebration as we take a stroll down the length of The Fence from Jane's Carousel in DUMBO down to Pier 5 of Brooklyn Bridge Park. 

Leica Camera would like to congratulate Santi Palacios for winning The Fence 2016 Juror's Choice Award for his "Coming Ashore" series.

Santi Palacios will receive a exhibition at the 2016 Photoville in New York City, a $5,000 Cash Prize to contribute to future work and a Leica T camera package. Learn more about Palacios and The Fence by visiting
