Holly Garner, founder of @IGDC, stands on the sea floor of the new immersive installation at The National Building Museum, ICEBERGS designed by James Corner Field Operations. The light in this portrait by Jarrett Hendrix is gorgeous—hitting her face in the most elegant way.
Our latest partner announcement involves a team of two fantastic, local photography organizations who’ll be joining us to celebrate the 10th annual Exposed DC Photography Show on March 10. IGDC and HOIST have teamed up to run a portrait booth, but with a twist! IGDC photographers Phil Martin, Lukas North and James Jackson will be on hand capturing simultaneous portraits of their subject, with lighting and backdrops for the photo booth provided by HOIST! With this arrangement, you’ll experience how different one photographer’s approach can be from another’s.
