LOOK13 is Liverpool’s International Photography Festival, now in its second edition. With exhibitions and events running across the majority of major galleries and institutions in the city, the festival’s 2013 theme is ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ exploring ‘how we create images of identity, subjectivity and the self’. Although the festival officially closed on June 15th, many of the key exhibitions continue to run throughout the summer and are worth a visit. Highlights from this year include; Sander/Weegee (Selections from the Side Photographic Collection) which presents images from the two prolific photographers documenting the first half of the 20th Century in both Germany and New York at the Bluecoat, Doubletake by Keith Medley at The Walker Art Gallery which presents selections from the Liverpool-based photographer’s archive and a snapshot of city life in the region during the 1960’s  and The Wild and the Wise, an exhibition by Charles Fréger at Open Eye, a first UK exhibition for the artist which includes well-known series The Wilder Man portraits.

Sander/Weegee runs at the Bluecoat until 14 July 2013
