Foto Extravaganza!

Now in it’s 4th year, FotoWeek DC has proven to be the premiere photography event in the Washington DC region. It begins tonight with a “Launch Party” that is sure to get everyone excited. Tickets are $55 and includes admission to two parties; one at the FotoWeek Central location (1800 L Street NW) and the next at the Corcoran Gallery of Art. Party-goers will have the first look at how the FotoWeek team transformed of 30,000 square feet (the old Boarder’s Bookstore) of empty space into a mecca of photography from around the world. And that’s just the beginning! Here are some of the upcoming events that I think look really cool/interesting/fun/inspiring:
