The second annual New York Photo Festival—beginning today and running through the 17th—features exhibitions, portfolio reviews, workshops, film screenings, and presentations (as well as parties), all focused on "the future of contemporary photography." This year, the festival is curated by William A. Ewing (director of the Swiss Musee de L'Elysee), Chris Boot (a London photo book publisher), Jody Quon (the New York magazine photography director), and Jon Levy (director of Foto8). A ticket for all four days of programming costs a reasonable $30, and if last year's astonishing 15,000 attendees are any indication, it's worth the money.
