Book Launch Event and 6 Free Workshops

Opening night for the “NotMyPresident: Five Years of Resisting Trump” gallery show will be held on August 24th at 7p.m. The free event will be held at the Strongin Collection at 1631 Wisconsin Avenue NW. I will also hold six complimentary workshops for those who want to learn a little about photography (details below)!

Lady Liberty is one of the images featured at the Strongin Collection.

In addition to remarks about the book, three very talented people will join me for a panel on photographing protests during the Trump era:

We will discuss what it was like photographing and curating images from the Washington DC protests, from the peaceful Women’s and Science Marches to the violent 2016 Inauguration protests and the post-2020 election MAGA rallies and counterprotests. Each of us has a unique perspective of the incredible and sometimes disturbing images scene during these four years.

Books will be available for purchase at the gallery. Interested parties can purchase one in advance via Indiegogo. And there will be some giveaways, too.

Please RSVP for the event here. While attendance is free, space is limited and there will be a waitlist.

Saturday, September 4 — Creative City/Street Photography Photo Walk in Georgetown (2 – 4 p.m.) Street photography is often about framing and finding the right spot, while you wait for the right person to come into your image. Other times, it really is a matter of right time, right place, and capturing the decisive moment. Bring a camera with a 35 or 50 mm lens for this afternoon photo walk in Georgetown.
