At the core of LOOK3′s programming are the INsight Conversations held in the historic Paramount Theater. With the purpose of celebrating and honoring the careers of the most influential living photographers of our time, this three-night event offers audiences the rare opportunity to listen and learn from the artists who have helped define the art of picture-making.
Large-scale projections of the artist’s work accompany these on-stage, one-on-one conversations between the artist and interviewer. Each INsight Artist also exhibits a special solo show at one of Charlottesville’s downtown art galleries.

Featured INSight Artists
Alex Webb arrived on the scene at a moment when photographers were looking for new ways of seeing and working in color. While most photojournalism was still being done in black and white in the late 1970s, Webb felt like he’d reached a dead end with the black and white photos he’d been shooting in New England and around New York.
Donna Ferrato is an internationally-known documentary photographer. Her gifts for exploration, illumination, and documentation coupled with a commitment to revealing the darker sides of humanity, have made her a giant in the medium.
Stanley Greene has called a camera in the right hands the most powerful weapon ever made. Greene’s hands are definitely the right ones. Over the last two decades, he has brought back haunting images from troubled places like Croatia, Rwanda, and the post-Katrina Gulf Coast.
