LookBetween for Emerging Photographers (by Look3 Festival of the Photograph)

14 Aug

We just wanted to announce that the LookBetween is taking place this coming weekend. This is a spin-off of Look3: Festival of the Photograph that takes place in Charlottesville VA each year in June. This is an “off” year, so the sponsors are doing a smaller event for emerging photographers. It’s an invitation-only even for 90 emerging photographers and others in the industry. Both Look3 and LookBetween were initiated by National Geographic photographer Nick Nichols. We’ll be attending and it sounds like it should be an amazing time filled with some of the best imagery in the world from up-and-coming photographers.

Here’s some information from the inviation:

PURPOSE: To assemble developing artists, editors, publishers, teachers, and professional photographers in order to celebrate and explore the future direction of photography.

WHAT TO EXPECT: LOOK3 is hosting an experimental two night event to present the work of 90 innovative photographers on a farm 30 minutes west of Charlottesville.  The 90 artists showing work were asked to participate by experts in this field such as PDN, Burn Magazine, Humble Arts, Getty Images, VII, and others.  This initiative, which we are calling LOOKbetween, is designed to showcase early-career talent and engage the presenting artists with media professionals on practices and trends influencing the direction of photography today.  We want to turn the traditional mentorship model on its head and let the established professionals hear what the next generation of photographers has to say.  Thank you to BD and National Geographic for supporting LOOKbetween. Each night will feature outdoor projections of work by the invited emerging photographers in attendance. Showcasing the work of these talented photographers is a main focus of the weekend. However, LOOKbetween is also designed to create networking opportunities and be a forum for the exchange of ideas between professionals and those early in their career. Saturday daytime will be devoted to discussion about important issues in photography.

In addition to all the great imagery, Burn Magazine, Photocrati, and Luceo Images will all be announcing the winners of their grant competitions for emerging photographers. We’ll write a post about the event and the grant winners next week.
