United Photo Industries' Photoville, a free pop-up photography village, returns to Brooklyn for its fifth year in a row this week and through the weekend. The event, which takes place inside over 50 shipping containers at the Brooklyn Bridge Plaza, is a collection of photography gallery exhibitions, lectures, workshops, and panels with a food and beer garden by Smorgasgburg and Brooklyn Brewery located within the complex.

One of the most attended photography events nationwide, Photoville has plenty to offer its guests besides the well-stocked beer garden and free admission. This year, Photoville features notable LGBT programming, including Miss Trans Israel (pictured above), Pulitzer Prize-winner Oded Balilty's project documenting the candidates in Israel's first transgender pageant. Photographer Wayne Lawrence also has an exhibit called #OrlandoStrong, which looks into the lives of those left behind by the victims of the Pulse shooting earlier this year. PBS' Point of View, which runs tonight only, is a series of LGBT-focused screenings and discussions.
