We hope everyone has marked their calendars for the 13th Annual Exposed DC Photography Show opening on February 13th! Today we announce our fourth Best in Show prize winner. Each year, Exposed DC invites a panel of five influential photographers to choose their favorite image, and each winning photographer receives a $100 cash prize from Exposed DC.
“Hyattsville, MD” by Chris Suspect was chosen by Darren Smith for its ability to capture a multiplicity of meaning in a single space. Smith writes, “Children and adults inhabit the same space but live in different worlds. The direct and flat gazes of the children humorously reveal they see through the facades adults so often construct and are not impressed.”
You can see more of Chris Suspect’s photographs on his website and Instagram.
Darren Smith supervises the foreign-language editions of National Geographic Magazine, which are produced in 36 countries. He is also a photographer and artist, who makes collages by hand from his photographs. His work has been exhibited in the D.C. metro area, New York, and Paris.
