The scarlet monochromatic image by Kate Warren is an incredibly striking portrait. In the corner, a small patch of green complements the red hue adding an element that briefly takes you away from the warm scene but then propels you back into it.
The shadows make this image by Kate Warren—we all know I love a good graphic photograph. Sometimes shooting when the sun is directly over your subject is a great thing.
It’s become a bit of a tradition to grab your closest photographer friends and make the short trip to Charlottesville for the Look3 festival. They don’t hold it every year, but it’s definitely worth going at least once, for the famous photographer sightings (James Natchwey strolled by me in a little shop the year I went), the often phenomenal exhibits, and actually, just hanging around the beautiful countryside surrounding UVa.
This year Chris Suspect headed down to the festival with some of our favorite local photogs, and he sent us this slideshow of their downtime swimming at Blue Hole. Photos by Suspect, Tatiana Gulenkina, Louisa Marie Summer, John Ulaszek, Kate Warren, and Bill Bramble. We could use one of those swimming holes in D.C. right about now.
