Street Photography Series

SPS Promo Image_midsizeThese instructional workshops and guided photo walks covering all eight of D.C.’s wards are designed to encourage active documentation of contemporary Washington, D.C. with a historical context. The series also encourages local artists to participate in the Spring 2017 For the Record juried exhibition at the Historical Society of Washington, D.C.

The workshops emphasize skills relating to historic documentation, photography and painting. The guided photo walks allow for participants to document a neighborhood in each of the city’s eight wards while learning about its history and development.
