“I explore with the credo that it is safe to go anywhere as long as the small, quiet, simply constructed box is nestled under my arm.” —Donna Ferrato
The noted LOOK3 photo festival kicks off today in Charlottesville, Virginia. Billed as: “3 days of peace, love and photography, 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.”
One of the photographers (among many) that I am looking forward to seeing discuss their work is New York-based, Donna Ferrato. While she is well-known for her work documenting domestic violence and abuse against women, Ferrato’s street-photography is also outstanding.
LOOK3 is a great opportunity to bring everyone in the photo community (and beyond) together to explore, learn, meet and to have some fun. This will be my first experience there, and while I look forward to attending, I also look forward to coming home freshly inspired. —Lane Nevares
