LOOK/13, Liverpool’s International Photography Festival, opens 17 May. To kick off the launch party at Camp and Furnace will be a giant slideshow, featuring the best photographic work submitted in response to the title ‘Made in Liverpool’. The event is designed to showcase the cream of Liverpool’s photographic talent and to explore local perspectives on the wider theme of LOOK/13: ‘who do you think you are?’
The selection of images will be made by LOOK/13 with the help of invited guest judges Laura Davis, Arts Editor of the Liverpool Post and John Stoddart, photographer to the stars.
John Stoddart said of Liverpool “I began my career in photography in Liverpool 25 years ago. Back then Liverpool had a fantastic rock scene, there was war on the streets and huge political change happening across the city. All of these factors have set me up with a vision that is still with me today”.
LOOK/13 is one of the UKʼs leading international photography festivals. Bringing together influential and established photographers, presented alongside international emerging talent, LOOK/13 will invite its dynamic line- up of artists to explore ideas of identity, subjectivity and selfhood, summed up in the question, ʻwho do you think you are?ʼ
LOOK/13 begins with an event-packed launch weekend and is proud to be collaborating with Liverpoolʼs most prestigious museums and galleries.
