East of the River

Anthony, Anacostia Waterfront Park, Washington, DC 2014

So the little project I’ve been working in my backyard here, East of the River, is ready for its first recital at Vivid Solutions Gallery in historic Anacostia.  A short walk from the Anacostia metro station the opening will feature myself, photographs, audio, and vino.  Please Do come! Leave a comment, tell your friends, make a new friend.

Also in August I’ll be hosting a shoot for a new project at Vivid Solutions: The Hopes and Fears Project. It’s pretty self-explanatory. Here are the details:

Susana Raab is a photographer at the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum, and began documenting the communities surrounding the museum with a medium format and a 4×5 camera in 2008. Raab is interested in how these communities have formed and evolved over the past fifty years and how that visually manifests itself today. The images in The Invisible Wall: Photographs from East of the River are the result of her walks throughout the community, during which she seeks out scenes and subjects randomly, relishing the element of chance in her encounters and collaborations.

On August 2 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.,Raab will set up her camera in the lounge of Anacostia Arts Center, to take photographs for another project, The Loves and Fears Project. She will be creating portraits with collaborators who will write down their greatest loves and fears. Each guest will receive a digital copy of their portrait.
