Wake-Up Call: Festival of the Photograph

Organizers of the first Festival of the Photograph Nick Nichols and Andrew Owens join Rick in the studio this morning to discuss the event, which will take place June 7-9. Some topics discussed include how the idea for the festival came about, what events will be available to the public, and “YourSpace” – a place where all festival guests can display their own work. Events will include exhibits at the Charlottesville Pavilion and Warehouse IX, as well as screenings of short films by several of the festival’s photographers. More information can be found of the festival’s website.

Passes for the 3-day event are $99, or $50 for high school and college students. Gallery events are free of charge.
