NightGallery ~ The city becomes an after-dark art gallery that illuminates DC with photo projections focused on human rights, the environment, and fine arts. Images will be projected on the facades of landmark buildings.
Satellite Central ~ The satellite location in Georgetown will compliment the events taking place at the Corcoran. Projection theaters will spotlight cutting-edge work focused upon social justice, fine art, and environmental issues. The 6500+ entries to the International Awards Competition will fill giant contact sheets as part of the Thumbnail Exhibition. Additionally, FotoBooks will feature recently published photography books by leading national and international publishers.
NightVisions ~ From 6pm-6am on November 6th, photographers throughout the DC metro area can submit work for this year’s theme: DC Portraits. Photographers capture images around the city and submit their work digitally to photo editors at FotoWeek DC Satellite Central in Georgetown. Editors will select one photo per entrant and amass a new exhibition to be shown throughout the week.
Lectures/Seminars ~ Renowned photojournalists, fine art and commercial photographers, curators, gallery owners, photo editors, and professors share their knowledge and know-how. Rarely has the public had such an opportunity to listen and learn from such a concentration of the photography “rock stars.”
Portfolio Reviews ~ An unparalleled opportunity for amateurs and professionals to have their work critiqued. Renowned curators, educators, photo editors, and experts in the fields of commercial, fine art, photojournalism, multimedia and documentary provide frank and insightful evaluations. Reviews include appraisals and helpful advice on how to rise to the next level of photography.
