Usually centered around politics, DC has always garnered a pretty dry reputation. I started Citizens of DC with the idea of creating an outlet that showcased DC as the transient melting pot it truly is. By recording these interesting people in their everyday commutes throughout life, I attempt to capture their style and the developing trends on the street. These are the citizens of DC…


“Clean, structured and minimal.”

“I’m a photographer so being comfortable comes first. I like classic and timeless pieces that are adaptable to any setting that I’m in.”

Top Uniqlo, tie Ralph Lauren, Lacoste pants, New Balance 993 sneakers, G-shock watch, Marc by Marc Jacobs earrings, and thrifted leather bag. 



“What inspires my style is being a grown man now, I’ve grown up and have to dress like it, plus I like being different.”

Britt Street Style

H&M blazer, blouse and pants, Zara loafers, Asos frames and thrifted pocket square. 


“Classy androgyny. Clothing stores should stop separating men’s wear and women’s wear.”

Britt Street Style

Schoolboy Blazer from J. Crew, Pants from Banana Republic, Clubmaster sunglasses from Ray Ban, Briefcase from Coach (a gift from my father to my mother in the ’90s).  


“Lots of menswear but with a more feminine silhouette. Simplicity and comfort over everything.”
