Break on Through to the Other Side: Saturday Nov. 7 LAUNCH!


There is a bit of disconnect in our fair city.  This was best exemplified to me when I was talking to a recent out-of-towner who had sojourned, and yes, that is what everyone is doing here until they’ve been here a decade or more, in DC in the past decade and was asking where I lived.  “I used to live here, I know DC,” she said.  Yeah, do you?  Because I don’t. And I bet you don’t know where Benning and Good Hope Rd meet and a hundred other places that make up the other three quadrants of Washington.

Anyhoo, here is our chance to rectify the sitch and support the fair ladies of the Women Photojournalists of Washington.  Come scoot your butt over the rivah to the delightful Honfleur Gallery in Anacostia, another East of the River project brought to you for your delight.  Here are the details:
