The Leica Gallery, at the Leica DC store, will hold a free lecture and book signing for their current exhibition featuring works by Craig Semetko, a renowned street and documentary photographer. The gallery shows work from Semetko’s book “UNPOSED” and a preview of his current project “America: E Pluribus Unum”. The event will take place this Saturday, January 19th, with two lectures; one from noon-1pm and and another from 3-4pm. Both lectures will be followed by a book signing; RSVP at “RSVP (at) leica-store-dc.com” with the preferred time. The lectures will discuss his experiences and show new images from his ongoing project. Prints will also be available for sale.

The Leica Gallery is showing the “UNPOSED” exhibit until January 31st.

While I won’t be able to make the lectures due to a sudden family obligation, this sounds like a wonderful chance to hear from an acclaimed photographer and get ideas for your own work. One of the best pieces of advice I’ve heard for anyone interested in developing an artistic eye is to explore many different artist’s works and listen to their experiences. You never know where/when inspiration will take you.

Brian is so DC. Born on Pennsylvania Ave (not there) to a lifelong Federal worker father and a mother who has worked for Garfinkel’s, the Smithsonian, and Mount Vernon. Raised on the “mean streets” of Cheverly, MD; went to high school at Gonzaga College High School (Hail Alma Mater!); and now trolls the corridors of Congress as a lobbyist, you couldn’t write a more quintessentially DC back-story. When he isn’t trying to save the country from itself, Brian can be found walking DC looking for that perfect photograph.

  1. I heard through the grape vine that Mr. Semetko will also be signing Easter Paraphernalia. Is this true? I have a photo of a chocolate bunny I made with my Leica 3 with a Sumicron 2.0 lens. It’s a fine chocolate bunny. I would be honored if a enowned street and documentary photographer would sign my chocolate bunny.
