Kenn Korb captures the city’s contrasts with his photos. In what he calls #agameoftones, he showcases photos with different, sometimes contrasting color tones allowing the photos to tell the stories of the city that few others can. What’s more, sometimes he adds a little pinch of socio-political activism, perhaps as a reminder that we live in Washington after all.

Sam Ray reminds us that art is all around us. With every photo he posts, he seems to be telling us to be more present and enjoy the environment around us. Perhaps if we stopped for a moment and looked around us being truly present in that moment, we would find so much beauty in the everyday stuff we could easily take for granted. He wants us to watch the flowers, enjoy the sun and even see the shadows cast by the beautiful spots of light by night.

Tom Kish documents what he eats in his travels within and without Washington DC. We love the way he makes art out of the food he eats from restaurants, reminding us about all those times we were so hungry, rushed into a restaurant, and ate our fill without thinking through the effort and skill that went into preparing that food. Consequently, Tom Kish photos will slow you down the next time you eat out as well as inspire you to try new foods.

A quick glance at Dom’s photos, it looks like a collection of random photos of his daily endeavors. However, a look closer reveals that there is nothing random about his photos; each piece is a meticulous capture of a moment in time, as he puts it, “or it didn’t happen.” His is a collection of moments in the U.S. Navy, at the Pentagon, Congress hearings and everything in-between, including “dogtography” and boxing.
