The 2023 Exposed DC Photography Show opens at Lost Origins Outside in the alley next to Ellē in Mount Pleasant on Sunday, June 4. Join us for an opening celebration from 3-6 p.m. The exhibition will be on view throughout the summer.
From the beginning, Exposed DC’s primary focus has been to celebrate local photography. Our annual show is curated from a contest to reflect the city we live in today. We’d love to see and hear about how these photos resonate with you. As such, we’re excited to have some prizes to give away in conjunction with our show and with thanks to our sponsors! This year, there are two opportunities to win a prize from Capital Photography Center, Aperturent, or Nations Photo Lab. See below for all the details.

At the opening celebration, attendees aged 18 or older will have the opportunity to enter a giveaway. A total of ten winners will be selected at random from all entries. Each will receive a $50 gift certificate to either Aperturent or Nations Photo Lab.
