Last Friday, I have the honor to be selected as one of the winners to be a part of the Exposed DC's 2018 Photography Show in DC! What a vibrant and lively way to kick off the show, especially at an innovative cultural location at @dupontunderground, which is renovated from a former trolley station.
In frame here is a mother and daughter playing and running down the train track while my winning photo “Conversation” is being projected large in the tunnel and on the other side on view in prints. How cool is that!
It always makes my heart happy to see how people are enjoying my artwork. When I walked into the opening reception a girl saw my name tag and cheerfully grabbed me and said, “Your photo is my favorite, I want one at my home!” 😭❤️ If you happen to see this, you made my day Katie thank you!
It was also such an honor to be exhibited along with all the other fellow talented DMV photographers to share our unique view and celebrate the experience of the people who live, love, and work here in DC!
The exhibition is free and on view today till 5/20 10am-5pm, and will close on 5/21 5-7pm.
Come enjoy the art and bring a moment of DC home with you in print ❤️
Special thanks to @exposed_dc, @dupontunderground, @dodgechrome, @goartful, @capitalphotographycenter, @union206 for making this happen!!

Exposed DC is excited to announce its 12th annual Exposed DC Photography Show, May 11 through May 21, 2018. The exhibit will be hosted by Dupont Underground, a former trolley station that has been repurposed into an innovative cultural space right in the heart of D.C.
These 40 winning photographs were chosen from a contest for their unique view of the Washington area as more than just a tourist destination and political realm. They showcase and celebrate the experience of the people who live, love, and work here. All photographs will be projected throughout the space, as well as printed by Dodge-Chrome, Inc. for display.
Five photographs will be awarded Best in Show awards, made possible through the support of Union 206 Studios. Each award is chosen by a panel of distinguished metro-area photographers: Marvin Joseph, Lucian Perkins, Carolyn Russo, Sanjay Suchak, and Nancy Walz.
At the opening reception, Dupont Underground will provide a cash bar for patrons over 21. The Beat and the Path will provide music. goARTful, a local startup subscription-based art service that Exposed DC is excited to be partnering with, will also be part of the celebration.
