Hi guys, as you maybe (hopefully?) know by now – FotoweekDC is back and making DC a more beautiful, fun place to be Nov 8-16 (want to get involved? enter the competitions/show at Fotobazaar/become a partner/volunteer), with the opening party being on November 7th at the Old Spanish Ambassador’s residence. AND… the musical talent has just been added to it: HAERTS (just in time for their new album “Giving Up” to drop on October 27th so you can hear it live here), local heroes Pleasure Curses and those awesome ROAM DJs to keep that party going all.the.time.

THE SOCHI PROJECT: An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus
Rob Hornstra and Arnold van Bruggen have been working together since 2009 to tell the story of Sochi, Russia, site of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. They have returned repeatedly to this region as committed practitioners of “slow journalism,” establishing a solid foundation of research on and engagement with this small yet incredibly complicated place before it finds itself in the glare of international media attention. Presented by Aperture, a not-for-profit foundation.
NEW SPANISH PHOTOGRAPHY_Visions Beyond Borders
