Gallery O on H Street and Women Photograph invite you to join them for the opening reception of “Insider/Outsider,” an exhibit curated by Women Photograph. There will be music in the courtyard by John Lewis as part of the opening night for the DC Jazz Festival.
“Insider/Outsider” explores the relationship between photographer and subject matter. Holistic storytelling requires both local and alien perspectives. These images seek to interrogate how those differences affect representation, access, and intimacy. Who has the right to tell a story? Are there limitations on objectivity as an insider, or sensitivity as an outsider? Presented as two parallel exhibitions, “Insider/Outsider” seeks to start a conversation about how photographers tell stories, how they define their own relationships to the people and issues they cover, and how their lives impact the stories they tell.
