LOOK3′s exhibits, outdoor projections, film screenings, on-stage interviews and other special events will create a perfect setting to share ideas and to be inspired by photography that will be installed in trees, projected on building walls and showcased in galleries throughout Charlottesville.

LOOK3 also celebrates the careers of legendary photographers Martin Parr, Sylvia Plachy and Gilles Peress, through solo exhibits and onstage interviews.

Photographers of all skill levels will find valuable instruction and experience by enrolling in classes and critique sessions taught by master photographers from around the world.

If you go, comments about your experiences are welcome here.
