Look3 Festival, Charlottesville’s festival of the photograph is wrapping up. I missed the festival this year except for two slide shows and a quick look at the World Press Photo 11 Exhibit at McGuffey.
What a year for news photographers… Earthquakes, floods, fires and humans behaving badly. My baby in the birdbath has a real world counterpart, photo by Javier Manzano.

I am sad to have missed so much of the festival this year, won’t happen again.

I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.
