Palisades Photo Walk
Sun, March 26, 2017, 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
Grab your camera (or cameraphone) and join the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., for a guided photo walk of Ward 3’s Palisades Neighborhood, led by professional tour guide, author, and performer Dwane Starlin. Meeting location is enclosed in your order confirmation. Both the beginning and end points of the walk are accessible via public transportation.
This isn’t your typical walking tour: Your guide will provide context throughout your time together, but will encourage participants to fan out to document this Ward 3 neighborhood.
The 2 hour photo walk, beginning at 1:00 p.m., includes an introduction to the historical context of the neighborhood; an opportunity to engage with a local resident, activist, political representative, or cultural ambassador to provide a contemporary viewpoint; a resource guide to Palisades-related collections accessible through the Historical Society’s Kiplinger Research Library; and tips on compiling the documentation necessary to make your contemporary photography work a possible resource for your descendants, future historians, and repositories such as the Historical Society.
All those interested in street photography and/or learning more about Palisades neighborhood are encouraged to participate! Advance registration and ticket purchase required.
This event is part of the Street Photography Series, a slate of instructional workshops and guided photo walks covering all eight of D.C.’s wards. This series is designed to encourage active documentation of contemporary Washington, D.C. with a historical context, and culminates with the 2017 For the Record exhibition.
Support for the guided photo walks is provided in part by Washington Walks.
