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.
Tipping Point features work by the graduating 2015 students of ICP's One-Year Certificate Programs: Documentary Photography & Photojournalism and General Studies in Photography. It is curated by Program Chairs Alison Morley and Marina Berio.
A Personal Note: I would so very much love to see you there. I will have some works based on my newest project, titled Women, which documents two transgender women in New York City. The work will be published on my website in the next week, so keep on checking back to see the full assignment!
