Yesterday I had the great honor of being on a panel discussion entitled “From the Streets of Washington” at Gallery O on H in Washington, DC, that was in conjunction with artist Michael Horsley’s exhibit "House of Champions" that depicts Horsley's vintage images of Washington DC primarily taken during the 1980s.

The panel was moderated Michael Horsley and consisted of me, Cynthia Connolly and Carolyn Toye. We talked about many things, including gentrification, the DC punk scene, the photographic process, how to get your work out there, Carolyn Toye’s new book The DC I See: Art of a Vanishing City, and much more. As you can see from the image above it was a packed house.

I was able to record the discussion and you can listen to it below. It is quite long (1 hour and 50 min) so I recommend using the download link to put it on your mobile device and listen at your leisure.
