Linger awhile. You are so beautiful. “Verweile doch, du bist so schön!” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe from Faust Part II
Linger on! (Verweile doch) – this is the impetus that continues to generate new photographers.
Capturing fleeting moments in time, these diverse works by six artists present extraordinary encounters with contemporary art. They range from documentary photography which enhances reality via the deft use of framing and lighting to precisely staged productions.
Presented as part of FotoWeek DC.
