"Under-Exposed" Exhibit Kicks Off Festival of the Photo

May 18, 2012

The Downtown Mall is looking more like a giant aquarium with a new exhibit, all part of a series of events leading up to the annual Festival of the Photograph.

Giant banners featuring underwater photography are on display in the trees along the mall. The nature exhibit is called "Under-Exposed" and will be on display for the next several weeks.

"This is probably our most popular exhibit. People love to come downtown the whole month of May and June and see all the photographs hanging in the trees," said Andrew Owen, Managing Director at Look3 Photograph.

This year's Festival of the Photograph kicks off on June 6 with an event featuring some of the world's greatest photographers.

For more information on the artists and exhibits check out Look3's website.
