Jenn and I were fortunate to be two of the 90 emerging photographers nominated to attend LOOKbetween a few weekends ago. We were inspired by some of the best and brightest young photographers that are working in the field today. See a full list of the photographers and links to their website on the LOOKbetween site.
I can say without hesitation it was the best photo festival I have ever attended. This had everything a good festival needs, an amazing venue (Thanks Jessica!) delicious food, gifted photographers, great management, generous sponsors, industry leaders who are passionate about our field and most importantly just all around good people.
The days were laid out nicely with each evening ending with 3-minute multimedia pieces of everyone’s work. Saturday morning was filled with small discussion groups on various topics and a larger afternoon group discussion based on those smaller discussion groups. The discussion that occurred around multimedia were interesting to me with some people strongly opposed to it and others willingly embracing it. If you know Jenn and I you know we’re all about embracing it. PDNPulse had two nice recaps of the multimedia happenings and discussions that took place At LOOKbetween, A Discussion of Video and Multimedia Storytelling and LookBetween Festival Highlights Emerging Photographers’ Multimedia
Andrew, Jenna, Miki and the rest of the gang at LOOK3 thanks for all your hard work in putting together what was an unforgettable weekend. Hopefully it can happen again sometime soon for another batch of up and coming photographers. Our profession needs it.
Til next time Deep Rock!
