Description of Pictures: Fourth Annual "Everyday DC" Photography Exhibition: Opening Reception
Please join us for an opening reception of the 4th annual "Everyday DC" exhibition at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery in Washington, D.C. on the evening of Wednesday, March 11, 2020 from 5:30-7:30pm.
Remarks will begin at 6:00pm, and will be followed by live music and snacks.
“Everyday DC,” a photography exhibition on view at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery from March 10, 2020, through March 20, 2020, presents a visual narrative of everyday life in Washington, D.C. through the eyes of more than 150 public middle school students from all four quadrants of the city. The exhibition is the culmination of a unit designed by the Pulitzer Center in collaboration with D.C. Public Schools (DCPS) and facilitated by over a dozen DCPS visual arts teachers. Images from 14 middle schools are represented in the exhibition.
The Everyday DC project was inspired by the Everyday Africa project, founded by Pulitzer Center grantees Peter DiCampo and Austin Merrill to visually represent a more accurate understanding of what the majority of Africans experience on a day-to-day basis: normal life. Like Everyday Africa, Everyday DC challenges students to consider how Washington D.C. is portrayed in the media, and how they can compose images that more accurately visualize their everyday experiences.
The Everyday DC project is funded in part by the D.C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. The project is also supported by the Pepco Edison Gallery, which generously donated the space for the exhibition. For more information about the unit plan and exhibition, contact email@example.com.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.

2020 photos: Well, that was a year, wasn't it? The COVID-19 pandemic cut off most events here in DC after March 11.
Trump's handling of the pandemic was a series of disastrous missteps and lies, encouraging his minions to not wear masks and dramatically increasing infections and deaths here. As the chant goes -- Hey, hey, POTUS-A; how many folks did you kill today? The BLM protests started in June, made all the worse by the child president's inability to have any empathy for anyone other than himself. Then of course he tried to steal the election in November. What a year!
The farthest distance I traveled after that was about 40 miles. I only visited sites in four states -- Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and DC. That was the least amount of travel I had done since 1995.
Number of photos taken this year: about 246,000, the fewest number of photos I had taken in any year since 2007.
