The intent of LOOK! is to highlight the abilities of the person being photographed and to help those viewing the photos to pause, reflect and see disability in a different way. It is a beautiful collection that speaks to our goals of creating inclusion, equity, and community.
To create the event, professional photographers from across the state volunteer their time for photo sessions to capture the spirit of the children and their families. The photos feature active, candid moments of the participants doing the things they like to do best.
The opening reception for LOOK! 2024 will be held on Sunday, June 2nd at the Richland County Library in downtown Columbia. Family and Photographer Applications are now open. Photo sessions will be scheduled from December through the end of March.
Photos from our previous LOOK! events can be purchased for display at your business or venue. Learn more about how you can support children and youth with disabilities.
The LOOK! 2023 Photography Exhibit will be traveling to the Lexington County Library in September.
