I was honored to attend LOOK3 - Festival of the Photograph in Charlottesville, Virginia this past week.
LOOK3 hosted a curated selection of low-edition photography books, new photography cooperatives (namely, Black Box), an extraordinary number of artist talks and a panel with three of PDN's "30 under 30" photographers to give career advice to the emerging photographer.
As I was a volunteer, I was able to assist Olivia Bee during her workshop at the EDU sessions. "Creating a Photographic Dream World" was geared towards local high school students, hand picked by their teachers, and was a full day-long event playing with portraiture on instax film outside the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center.
Additional highlights of the festival included meeting Doug Dubois, Jon Golden, Ike Edeani, and many other esteemed editors & colleagues.
Oh, the places you'll go as a documentary photographer! I am a part time photo assistant for Michael Benabib, I donned a hard hat and ventured underground into the construction site inside the James A. Farley Post Office Building on 34th Street in New York City.

So grateful for all the incredible editors & photographers I met this weekend. I received some truly illuminating career advice and work critique.
A special thanks to Jim Estrin for the kind words.
All in all, it was a fun set to be on. The entire cast is in their late teens and early twenties; often scenes are ad libbed on the spot.
Since stills are secondary to the actual filmmaking, a photographer on a movie set must remain as out of the way and quiet as possible. The majority of the film was photographed in St. George, Staten Island, in a communal artist residency space called The Fay.
The below movie poster was composited with various stills I shot on set.
