He is also the co-founder of PHOTOVILLE, a modular venue built from re-purposed shipping containers, on the waterfront of New York City.

As a portfolio reviewer, Mr. Barzilay offers participants professional development, guidance, and curatorial insight as well as possible exhibition opportunities at his own gallery and numerous photography festivals around the world.
