This past weekend, Radius Books artist Julie Blackmon and editor Darius Himes presented on the collaborative process between artist and publisher at the Look3 Festival in Charlottesville. The daytime and early evening talks and presentations all happened in a historic theater on the downtown walking mall. It was super cool. Mary Ellen Mark, Joel-Peter Witkin and James Nachtwey were the 3 headliner photographers.
Darius Himes was also a co-curator (along with Leah BenDavid-Val) of the annual photography books exhibition, which occupied a small exhibition space along the walking mall.
