For those of you with an interest in photojournalism you should know about something called Look3 Festival of the Photograph. I’ll be heading to the event early tomorrow and will hopefully see some of you there. This is a perfectly sized event meaning not massive, but that’s a good thing because the density of the experience is focused, heightened and truly consumes anyone who makes the decision to attend. The locations and venues are superb, and the city of Charlottesville is a cool place that transforms into an open air exhibition space.
In the words of the organization….
This year’s line-up of artists and events promises to be extraordinary, representing a broad range of work and perspectives. LOOK3 will welcome Nick Brandt, Graciela Iturbide, Frans Lanting, Yuri Kozyrev, Olivia Bee, Sheila Pree Bright, Mary F. Calvert, Binh Danh, Doug DuBois, Joe Riis and Radcliffe “Ruddy” Roye to the Paramount Theater stage on June 15, 16, 17 & 18. Exhibitions by each of the featured artists can be seen in pop-up galleries, on buildings, and even in the trees along Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall!
