Visual Poetry features the work of Photoworks artists who were challenged to ponder the poetry in their images and to assign words to the photographs they chose for this exhibition. Fourteen photographers, Photoworks faculty and students, have agreed to challenge their vision by exploring two creative art forms – images captured through a lens and words that can describe, challenge and illuminate. Photoworks is the resident digital and darkroom photography studio at Glen Echo Park.
