LOOK 3: Festival of the Photography, Charlottesville on June 12-14

If you haven’t heard of LOOK 3 happening in Charlottesville Virginia in mid-June, you will.

From the website:

“3 days of peace, love and photography. A festival for those that love the still image, celebrating the careers of legendary artists, emerging talent, and the best work from the past year.”

If you haven’t attended, you will. Lectures, panel discussions, conversations, exhibitions, workshops and more. This event has evolved from a gathering in National Geographic photographer Michael “Nick” Nichol’s backyard to a major event and memorable experience.

Check it out here – and don’t wait too long to register, secure housing and make plans to BE THERE.

August Sander: People of the Twentieth Century

Bernd and Hilla Becher: Basic Forms

“Architectural forms—winding towers, framework houses, blast furnaces, water towers—reveal unexpected beauty in these photographs by Bernd and Hilla Becher. Many of the Bechers’ early images were taken in the Siegen district, where August Sander’s subjects had lived or worked half a century before.”
