LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph Closes

LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph, the photo festival in Charlottesville, Virginia, announced today that is ceasing operations due to lack of funding. A statement from the festival’s board, posted on the LOOK3 website, says, “While our event was beloved by many in Charlottesville and in the international photography community, we unfortunately do not have the financial resources to continue.”

The festival had grown out of slide shows that National Geographic photographer Michael “Nick” Nichols hosted each summer in his backyard in Charlottesville. The LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph became a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2006. Its sponsors have included Canon, Fujifilm, Leica, National Geographic and Adobe.

Over the past ten years, LOOK3 had hosted portfolio reviews, exhibitions and talks by Joseph Koudelka, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Donna Ferrato, Larry Fink, Richard Misrach and others. In 2010 and 2014, it took hiatuses to offer LookBetween, a gathering for young and emerging photographers.
