DC Fotoweek Happenings

Get ready to snap your fingers in unison and enjoy the love that is DC Fotoweek.  Some venues seem to be doing a good job of taking the reins from more, er, commercial interests.  I know, it’s utterly bourgeois to even mention it.

Anyhoo, lots of fun things happening including a photographer/street artist collaborative exhibit at Honfleur Gallery which features a couple of my local favorites:  photographers Matt Dunn, Chris Usher,  Jason Horowitz, and Michelle Frankenfurter and great street artists DECOY and Mike Estabrook; a slideshow and concert with one half of Thievery Corporation with the Metrocollective fotografas. Tickets to Thievery/Metrocollective can be purchased for $20 here.

Is it a bird, is it a plane? no it’s projections of photographs on historic buildings with Andy Adams, Larissa Leclair, Jamie Welford and other folks: NightGallery projections can be enjoyed at many locations throughout Washington, DC,including the exteriors of the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design, Newseum,
the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, American Red Cross, National Museum ofthe American Indian, Satellite Central (M Street – Georgetown) and the Human Rights
Campaign buildings.

Northern Virginia Community College photo professor Gail Rebhan alerts me to this interesting art book lover appropriate show:
