Photos from Crystal City’s Photo Show

FotoDC’s month-long FLASH photo exhibit will kick off in Crystal City tonight.

Located on the top two floors of an office building at 2450 Crystal Drive, the show features 250 photos from 55 local photographers, a library of 150 photography books and a wine bar run by the Washington Wine Academy.

Photographers and reporters got a sneak peak at the exhibit last night. Here some of our photos from the event.

As part of FLASH, will be hosting a photo contest dubbed “Flickr Flash.”

The contest will challenge photographers to take photos during the first two Crystal City 5K Friday races in April and submit them to a Flickr group for recognition and prizes. Ten finalists will be chosen and will be voted on by readers. The top three vote-getters will be announced at a FLASH event and will receive gift cards from local restaurants.
