Photographer His Noodly Appendage frames a familiar Eastern Market scene on a deliciously messy canvas, almost but not quite keeping the viewer’s eye away from the beautifully expressive portrait at the very top.
If you’ve ever wandered north along Connecticut Avenue NW from Dupont Circle, you may have noticed a little shop selling framed travel photographs. The storefront is painted TARDIS-blue, which is the perfect choice of color because there’s a lot more on the inside than you would think possible. Claude Taylor has been selling his work there since 1998. We asked him to shed some light on his business:
Were you selling your photographs anywhere else before you opened the store?
I began selling my photographs at art shows and street festivals in 1997.
