Look3 Charlottesville Festival of the Photograph

PO Box 1541, Charlottesville, VA 22902

(434) 977-3687


LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph is an annual celebration of photography, created by photographers, for those who share a passion for the still image. The Festival features exhibits and on-stage appearances of three “legacy” photographers, as well as many exhibitions, outdoor screenings, and projections over the course of a week.

Historic downtown Charlottesville is transformed into a living image with photographs hanging in the trees, projected in storefront windows and on the sides of buildings, as well as in all the galleries. The Festival is designed to bring together the international photography community and create opportunities for attendees and artists to share images, ideas and to be inspired.

Festival typically occurs each June. For more information on this year's festival, visit
