This Saturday, the annual weeklong event, FotoWeekDC, will kick off with exhibits, panels, and photographic projections featuring photography from all around the world. Founded in 2008, the photography festival attracts over 40,000 attendees every year. This year, some of the topics explored through film include the world hunger crisis, nearly 12,000 endangered species, and women's issues. Alongside these events, you can also discover some of the best and brightest photography featuring Washington, D.C. architecture with artists like Colin Winterbottom and Michael Borek. Seeing as how we love architecture, we wanted to help our readers get a sneak peek with what to expect from FotoWeekDC. Below, check out a few of the many photographs that will capture the nation's capital's best side, including the earliest known photograph of the Smithsonian Castle and an eerie black-and-white photo of the Washington Monument.
