The Invisible Wall: Photographs from East of the River | Susana Raab

Opening Reception: July 11, 6-9 pm 

Exhibition on View July 11 – August 29 

Portrait Event with Raab: August 2, 11 am – 2 pm

Susana Raab is a photographer at the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum, and began documenting the communities surrounding the museum with a medium format and a 4×5 camera in 2008. Raab is interested in how these communities have formed and evolved over the past fifty years and how that visually manifests itself today. The images in The Invisible Wall: Photographs from East of the River are the result of her walks throughout the community, during which she seeks out scenes and subjects randomly, relishing the element of chance in her encounters and collaborations.

On August 2 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.,Raab will set up her camera in the lounge of Anacostia Arts Center, to take photographs for another project, The Loves and Fears Project. She will be creating portraits with collaborators who will write down their greatest loves and fears. Each guest will receive a digital copy of their portrait.
