Foto Week DC 2009 in Georgetown

FotoWeek DC is an annual super-sized exhibition taking place at 60 galleries and locales and in the DC Metro area with entries from 3,500 photographers. Started by a non-profit organization last year to "celebrate the power of photography."

Georgetown hosts many of the main galleries, one of which being on 3338 M St NW M Street. This two story exhibit featured a diverse display of photography. Subjects varied from portions of the DC 12 hour overnight photo competition to scenes from troubled Uganda.

The seven day event goes from Nov 7th to next Saturday Nov 14th. All the galleries are free, but you should register online and print out the bar coded ticket beforehand.

The festival also has two locations near Clarendon I want to check out soon: one in Courthouse and Rosslyn.
