LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph


The LOOK3 logo lights up the Pavilion at the west end of Charlottesville'€™s downtown pedestrian mall. This venue hosts LOOK3's SHOTS and WORKS projections. Image by Shannon Wells.

Showcasing some of the most exciting and innovative current photography projects today, these Friday and Saturday evening projections in the Charlottesville Pavilion present a dynamic cross-section of work from photojournalism to fine art. In these 2-hour projections, established professionals and emerging artists are given the rare opportunity to fully express an entire project to a large audience.

How the selections are made: Each year LOOK3 reaches out to a number of individuals and organizations requesting stand-out photo projects to be considered for the SHOTS and WORKS projections. From this pool of suggestions, LOOK3′s board of advisors and guest curators choose a final selection of 40-50 projects. We are unable, unfortunately, to accept individual submissions due to limited staff and resources.

Friday and Saturday night of the Festival 9pm – 11pm
