The Next Big Thing: DCist Exposed

Every day, a posse of really dedicated photographers take to the streets of the DC Metro area with their digital cameras, looking to capture something cool about life in the city. They place those photos on Flickr and very generously tag the shots with a DCist tag. Their work helps bring vibrance to the site and helps take our readers to the nooks and crannies of DC that our mostly office-bound writer staff can't get to--even if we had that shutterbug radar for shots off the beaten path.

Such generosity should be rewarded, so, from our pool of regular contributors, we selected a bunch of their best work and we're going to place these photos into a venue where they can truly be appreciated--not on some blog, but on a gallery wall. It's called the DCist Exposed Photography Show and it's running at the Warehouse Arts Complex (which Gridskipper calls DC's "clearinghouse of alternative culture") from this Friday, March 9 through the following Friday, March 16. Especially consider coming to the opening night reception on March 9--the photographers will be on hand and we'll be raffling off some truly phenomenal swag from Crumpler Bags. Plus music and cash bar.

It all goes down beginning at 6:30pm this Friday. The Warehouse is located at 1017-21 7th Street, NW. Take Red Line to Gallery Place Station, Green/Yellow Line to Mount Vernon Square. Hope to see you there!
