About Frans Lanting
Frans Lanting has been hailed as one of the great photographers of our time. His influential work appears in books, magazines, and exhibitions around the world. Born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, he moved to the United States to study environmental planning. Soon after, he began photographing the natural world and never turned back. For three decades he has documented wildlife from the Amazon to Antarctica to promote understanding about the Earth and its natural history through images that convey a passion for nature and a sense of wonder about our living planet.
Lanting’s work is commissioned frequently by National Geographic, where he served as a Photographer-in-Residence. His assignments have ranged from a first look at the fabled bonobos of the Congo to a unique circumnavigation by sailboat of South Georgia Island in the sub Antarctic.
About LOOK3 Festival Of The Photograph
Look3 celebrates the vision of extraordinary photographers, ignite conversations about critical issues, and foster the next generation of artists. As a nonprofit organization, LOOK3 challenges assumptions about photography by presenting diverse work by a variety of artists, developing innovative educational initiatives, and offering immersive community events. Their work is motivated by the resolute belief that substantive, provocative photography not only has the power to deepen awareness about the forces that shape our world—it can change it for the better. Guided by our nonprofit, noncommercial mission, they create public events and a mentorship program dedicated to photography. The LOOK3 Festival transforms the historic pedestrian center of downtown Charlottesville, Virginia into a public arts experience. In 2010 and 2014 LOOK3 produced LOOKbetween, the anchor event of the mentorship program, which fostered and celebrated international early-career photographers.
