John Edmonds is a fine art photographer with something to say. Living and working in Washington D.C., Edmonds creates art that colorfully “explores themes of masculine identity, beauty, race and sexuality. Fascinated by the veiling and unveiling of these identities, his work is as personal as it is universal, social and political.”
Join us Monday, Jan. 27 at 6 p.m. to listen to the artist speak about his telling work. Food and drinks will be served. This program is free and open to the public.
THINK TANK is a new monthly forum to explore and discuss art and contemporary topics at the Dorothy I. Height/Benning Neighborhood Library.
