We can’t wait to celebrate local photography with you all at our 14th Annual Photography Show opening on Wednesday, February 19 from 6-9 p.m. You can grab your discounted tickets in advance here! As the big day approaches, we are excited to announce the final Best in Show winner for this year’s show. Every year we ask a panel of five distinguished, local judges to each select one image to receive a Best in Show award. The winning photographers each receive a $100 cash prize and are acknowledged in the show and exhibition program.
Today, we are announcing the Best in Show winner “Union Station” by Sofía Sebastián, selected by judge Angela Bain. Bain commented, “This image has it all: mood, compelling composition, play of shadows, light and dark, juxtaposition of hard straight lines with gentle curved ones, all while telling a story of DC and some of the interesting people who live and work here at the busiest transportation hub in our dynamic city.”
Angela Bain is a life-long local of the D.C. metro area who has been photographing people since 1995. A famous photo by Man Ray hanging in her high school photography class was the gateway drug into a love affair with this art form. She studied fine art photography at Towson University, and has worked in the areas of portrait, studio, fine art, commercial, editorial and wedding photography.
