Join us in a thoughtful discussion on the DMV landscape and how our community captures the diversity and beauty through their photography.  What does DC look like and how do we present it to a global audience?  We will explore this, as well as, street photography and portraiture of the citizens that make the DMV truly unique.

Panel Contributors:

Laurie Collins (@dccitygirl) is a Washington DC local who has witness great change in her city.  Having started her Instagram account with primarily macro photography, she started looking up and now produces memorable and beautiful images of her city. 

Peter Flint (@flint_photo) is an urban explorer with a bag full of gear.  Whether the rural and abandoned landscape of our suburbs or our historic DC landmarks, Peter’s subject is always given monumental importance and prestige.

Nana Gyesie (@nanagyesie) is a portrait, travel and street photographer whose goal is to tell a good story and connect his viewer to his subject.  When not traveling, Nana can often be found on the streets of DC with camera in hand. 

Albert Ting (@pootie_ting) is drawn to architecture and space, specifically how building, light and people exist seamlessly together.  His prolific account contains beautiful snapshots and details of DC that many wouldn’t stop to consider. 

Victoria Pickering (@vpickering) is a Washington DC artist who regularly has her finger on the pulse of our city’s culture fabric.  Not only is her style unique and skilled but, as a documentarian, her work is a true reflection of our vibrant city.
