Official/Unofficial: Photographs of Washington DC is an online exhibition at Glen Echo Photoworks juried by the renowned photographer, Sharon Farmer. 
Official/Unofficial Washington DC challenges our assumptions about the nation’s capital, juxtaposing iconic images from the halls of political power with more intimate photographs of daily life in the District of Columbia. The exhibit portrays a complex and exceptional city in which the official and the unofficial co-exist, and sometimes clash, in extraordinary ways.
