Images from my Bering Sea and new Graveyard Point series will be projected on the big screen at the Look3, Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, Virginia tomorrow night. My work was chosen among 44 other photographers including favorites Todd Hido, Jason Fulford, and Simon Norfolk. I wish I was there, but I’m pretty happy to be in Portland at the moment between whaling in Norway and Salmon fishing in Alaska next week. Below is some more info from the Festival!
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. With the freedom to show many images and add voice and/or music to accompany the projection, artists are freed from typical commercial constraints.
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 that demonstrate achievements in artistic vision. We are unable, unfortunately, to accept individual submissions due to limited staff and resources.
