One of the first people I interviewed for this site has a photography show coming up this weekend, and everyone is invited. Although it’s probably most appropriate if you live in Washington, D.C. But feel free to fly in from overseas!
Michael Wilkinson is one of the brains behind Pete’s New Haven Style Apizza, a local pizzeria that is steadily expanding across the District and its suburbs. Back in 2009 I met him at the company’s Columbia Heights venue for a chat over a slice or two.
When he’s not at work, Michael is an avid photographer. This Saturday February 15th he’ll be displaying an exhibition of some of his shots called “DC Lo-Fi,” which — and forgive me as I defer to quoting from an email from him here describing the show — “seeks to capitalize on two points of familiarity to many city residents: urban vignettes focused on the disappearing signs of an ever-aging yet ever-changing city, and the ubiquitous square format of Instagram with its instantly recognizable filter.”
The show runs from 4pm to 7pm at the Anacostia Arts Center, 1231 Good Hope Road SE. And it’s free! The best kind of price!
