The woods commonly serve as metaphor for many things—including that which is mysterious, perhaps frightening, or simply unfamiliar. The forest marks the edge of mankind’s domain, and for centuries poets, composers, painters, and artists of all media have been inspired by what at first may seem outwardly calm and tranquil, but firmly delineates what should be the boundary of man’s authority.

Managing Director of the LOOK3 Festival, Andrew Owen, explains: “LOOK3 is HOME. That’s the theme this year chosen by our curators, but it also signifies what we stand for: bringing the photography community together, celebrating our heroes, and inspiring the next generation. The Festival is designed to recharge you creatively and connect you to a family of people who share a love of the photographic medium.” At the core of the LOOK3 Festival programming are the three INsight Artists—Antonin Kratochvil, Massimo Vitali, and Nan Goldin. The INsight Artist program features a special print exhibit by each artist, and 3 nights of INsight Conversations at the Paramount. These on-stage interviews provide a rare opportunity to hear a photographic legend speak candidly about influences, process, and inspirations. A hallmark of the LOOK3 Festival is the annual TREES exhibit, which in 2011 will feature George Steinmetz’s stunning aerial photographs of remote landscapes around the world. Presenting artists also include George Steinmetz, Steve McCurry, Christopher Anderson, Ashley Gilbertson, LaToya Ruby Frazier, and David Liittschwager. Look 3 will take place from June 9–June 11 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
