LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph is a celebration of photography, created by photographers, for those who share a passion for the still image. The festival features exhibits and on-stage appearances of three “legacy” photographers, as well as many exhibitions, outdoor screenings, and projections over three days and nights. Historic downtown Charlottesville is transformed into a “living image” with photographs hanging in the trees, projected in storefront windows and on the sides of buildings, as well as in all the galleries. Billed as “3 days of peace, love and photography,” the Festival is designed to bring together the international photography community and create opportunities for attendees and artists to share images, ideas and to be inspired. The festival is June 11th-13th. Full details about LOOK3 can be found at www.look3.org.
