Feedback please!

Thursday, July 27th, 2006

I’m headed out on vacation for three weeks, so won’t be doing updates until I’m back. While I’m gone, I’ll be pondering how DC Photo Scene should look going forward. We’ve had the same format for a couple of years now, and although we hear from you every once in a while, we’d like some feedback. During the next few weeks, please drop us a note telling us what you like and what should be changed. Is the weekly listing enough? Would an individual entry (with comments allowed) for each show be a more useful format? How many of you find the (infrequent) mini-reviews useful? Would less frequent updates be just as useful? Every other week perhaps?

Thanks for any thoughts!

Two quickies

Wednesday, July 26th, 2006

First, Julius Shulman is speaking tonight at the National Building Museum - get tickets at the door starting at 5:30pm.

Second, Numark gallery has a Photo Redux exhibit through August 11, including Shimon Attie, Chan Chao, Doug Hall, Nikki S. Lee and Jim Sanborn. Why it isn’t on their website, I have no idea - their website is a flash monstrosity that is almost always out of date.
