FLASH will feature 250 photos, 55 photographers and a library of 150 photo books. The 12th and 13th floors of 2450 Crystal Drive will be transformed into a gallery of photography, featuring a multitude of new works. The expansive space will be split up into two locally curated shows, with space dedicated to individual photographers.
One of the exhibits features works selected by a high profile judging panel that chose 25 photographers to display five photos each (125 photos total). The high-profile judging panel included: Philip Brookman, chief curator and head of research at the Corcoran Gallery of Art; Avi Gupta, photo editor at U.S. News & World Report; Philippa Hughes, chief creative at Pink Line Project, Amanda Maddox, associate curator of photography and media arts at the Corcoran Gallery of Art and Molly Roberts, photography editor at Smithsonian Magazine. The other exhibit includes 30 photographers that were selected by a FotoDC panel of reviewers that features another 125 works.
In addition to photography, the space will contain a lounge and bar where visitors can browse through top photography books from around the world. FLASH will represent a total photographic immersion featuring works from across the thematic spectrum – from documentary to fine art with every genre represented.
