As one of the area's premier photography galleries, Photoworks' latest exhibit strives to initiate a visual dialogue at one of the most divisive times in our Nation's history. The exhibiting photographers' work features everything from political protests to daily life in the D.C. region.

 

As an art institution showcasing photographers in the Washington Metropolitan Area, we are in a unique position to initiate a visual dialog that explores the connections and divisions that currently exist in our nation, and in our national's capitol. Robert Miller, Deputy Director of Photography at The Washington Post will serve as the juror for the exhibition. Miller's journalistic focus on the news, which includes Nation, Foreign, Financial, Real Estate, Metro, Investigative, Outlook and the Digital News Hub. Miller has deftly handled the last eighteen months of the presidential campaign and national enterprise coverage for The Washington Post. He also coaches and mentors the Post's newest photo editing staff members and staff photojournalists.
