LOOK3 Festival installs 2016 exhibition in trees

By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- There is something new, yet familiar on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall, but visitors have to look in the trees to find it.

The LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph is on its way back in town and representatives of the festival installed their 2016 'Tree's Exhibition' along the mall.

It features the work of a California-based Dutch photographer specializing in wildlife photography.

Organizers say this year's festival will be bigger than ever and features more free activities like print sharing, walking tours tours and free Father's Day family photos taken by professional photographers.

Still, organizers say the most treasured part of the festival will always be the tree installations.

"It's something that everyone can take advantage of, take into their lives and remember from time ahead," said LOOK3 Festival Director Mary Virginia Swanson. "We've had so many people stop us this morning during the installation remembering the images from years past. I love that, it means the images are impacting everyone."

The free Father's Day photos will take place at the Jefferson School's African-American Heritage Center.

Also, the featured artist Franz Lanting will be speaking about his photographs on the mall at the Paramount Theater on June 15.
