FotoWeekDC: Life Lives Here... And Nowhere Else In The Universe

© Mark Christmas, iLCP
Founded in 2008, FotoWeek DC has evolved from a city-centric photography festival to a multi-season tribute -- with international appeal -- to photography in all its forms. FotoWeek DC celebrates the transformative power of photography through the exhibition of inspiring and provocative images, diverse programming, and collaboration with the local and international community. The event kicked off on November 6 and runs through November 13.

The International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) is excited and honored to be a part of this year's event with the exhibit, Life Lives Here... And Nowhere Else In The Universe. Curated by Cristina Mittermeier, these projections by Fellows of the iLCP shine a light on some of our planet's most beautiful and precious natural resources... And the threats facing them. We hope they will help connect the dots between cause and consequence on all our environmental decisions, and lead us to understand how every action has an effect on our planet and all life on it.

If you're in the DC area, you can catch the night gallery projections throughout the week at the below locations:
Nov 8th 5 to 10pm in Dupont Circle
Nov 8th 6:30 to 8pm Road Projections Silver Springs -- Elsworth Drive (in front of the stage near the water fountain), Silver Springs, Maryland
Nov 9th 6 to 10pm FWDC Satellite -- 3330 M Street NW
