This photograph taken by Victoria Pickering during D.C.’s Pride celebration is genuinely captivating. The upward angle of the camera elevates the subject who is framed eloquently in the nook of this building. The figure projects an air of confidence as her head is raised high and her gaze focused on the day’s festivities all the while holding the multi-colored flag of the LGBT movement. Thanks, Victoria for sharing this image that embodies the strength of Pride.
Different than typical street photography, capturing images at protests or rallies often allows the photographer to get up close and personal with their subjects, who expect more media attention than usual as they try to raise awareness. This image taken by Victoria Pickering features a rally member outside of the Supreme Court, while the voting rights case Husted v. A. Philip Randolph Institute was argued in the court. Although the subject’s face is covered, Victoria makes direct eye contact with the individual, capturing stark emotions of uncertainty and concern.
It’s your very last chance to see D.C. artist Linn Meyers’ mesmerizing work at the Hirshhorn before it gets painted over. (If you can’t make it during the day, go this Thursday from 5 to 8:30 p.m. for the museum’s August Happy Hour, which will offer tours of the exhibit.) This photo from a year ago documents Meyers installing the work, and it caught my eye because I’m not sure where the work started. Did it start low and go up or did it come from the bottom left corner? Either way, Victoria Pickering’s composition is on point here.
The 3.5 foot tall Corpse Flower is currently in peak bloom at the United States Botanical Garden. During this time the plant secretes a smell so foul that it’s compared to that of rotting flesh. My social media feeds have been flooded with images of this grotesque but beautiful bloom. Victoria Pickering’s image wonderfully captures the act of documenting this rare occasion in full, personal point-of-view.
