Closing Reception: WOMEN OF COLOUR | Presented by The Monroe Trust Artist Collective | a photography series by Violetta Markelou

  • The TMT Artist Collective 1515 14th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States (map)

The Monroe Trust Artist Collective presents the official closing party for Washington DC based fashion portrait photographer Violetta Markelou. The photography show unveils WOMEN OF COLOUR, a portrait series of six inspiring women with unparalleled style. In an ever-changing and transient city, Washington DC’s fashion scene remains conservative with a styleless reputation. WOMEN OF COLOUR challenges this stereotype by highlighting the unique style and attitude of these women who live and work in the district. This exhibit provides an in-depth account of professional women who break the stereotypical mold of the Washingtonian professional. A careful study of human perception is conducted. Personal style and perception versus outside perception is examined. Not only is the exhibit a collection of fashion-inspired photography with a photojournalistic influence, it also highlights each subject’s individual style while capturing their thoughts which are literally printed, in the exhibit, under each piece of work. Fashion muses Anchy Wei, Tara Papanicolas, Melissa Sullivan and Monling Lee.
