For a long time, under the #mydccool hashtag on Instagram, I’ve been cataloging several photographers who are shooting the most breathtaking scenes in the DMV region. They’re prolific in posting images of both monuments we all know, and other corners of our city and region that light up through their lenses.
I reached out to many of them, and they were gracious enough to share with me their personal top three, along with a brief explanation about why each image is so special to them. Here starts a series on DMV photographers and the places they memorialize with their cameras.
Keep in mind, these people don’t necessary do this for a living. Adam Brockett has a PhD in neuroscience and psychology, and works as a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Maryland. Eugene Soh is a cardiologist. Birch Thomas IS a professional photographer, and in her spare time she’s been shooting a documentary on the creative process of artists. Pretty cool stuff all around.
I hope you’ll follow them—each of their IG handles are linked through their name:
