Every Monday at 6pm

We are a group of photographers who gather on Monday nights at 6:00 pm at Photoworks at Glen Echo Park to explore historic photo processes together, including but not limited to: cyanotype, salted paper, platinum/palladium and wet plate collodian. Sometimes we print; sometimes we chat and share ideas. Always we support and learn from each other.

Significant Insignificance 

Online Exhibition by Lewis Schrager 

July 6 - September 6

We are excited to showcase photographer, Lewis Schrager, and his beautiful work of black and white photographs. 

Lewis describes an affinity for taking photos depicting the smallness, vulnerability, and “significant insignificance” of ourselves and the living things that share this vast world with us. He also expresses a deep respect for photojournalists such as Sebastião Salgado, whose single images tell book-length stories of oppression, resilience, redemption.
