DC-ers, its FotoWeek at the Corcoran. This means lots of amazing photography activities, lectures, and exhibits. Almost all of which are free through Saturday, Nov 12.
I attended one of the Noon Lecture Series today with DT by Amy Yenkin, the Director of the Soros Foundations’ Documentary Photography Project. The Project supports photographers who are using stills/video/audio/all of the above to bring about social change of some sort. 
Sometimes, I walk into a museum or gallery and think that photography is a wealthy person’s luxury which, to some extent, it is. But then there is the use of photography in the way Soros supports. In a way that shares experiences, spreads knowledge, empowers, brings people of all walks together. Not so frivolous after all?
Yenkin also discussed the criteria used to evaluate applications for their Audience Engagement Grant. One point in particular resonated with me: respect the community that’s being documented. How difficult that must be to go about artistic inquiry without detracting from the initial subject.
