“Everything about this festival was inspiring….It made my German heart skip a beat. I am so thankful that I got to be a part of this!
I really appreciate everything you did for us young photographers. For a few days you gave us a reason to keep on working for a long time. I feel inspired and bursting with new ideas and energy. I can’t wait to get started!!”
"I wanted to write and thank you for putting together such a wonderful weekend. I drove out of there exhausted, to be sure, but supercharged in terms of new ideas, creative inspiration, and just a general sense that there are a bunch of good people out there who are really thinking hard about how to make the media that we produce and consume more valuable. In a word, I had a blast, and I can’t wait to get out there and report the next story."
LOOK3 is hosting an experimental two night event to present the work of 90 innovative photographers on a farm 30 minutes west of Charlottesville. This initiative, which we are calling LOOKbetween, is designed to showcase early-career talent and engage the presenting artists with media professionals on practices and trends influencing the direction of photography today. We want to turn the traditional mentorship model on its head and let the next generation of photographers, editors, publishers, curators, and media professionals share their vision for the future.
