“Gallery OonH H Street Photo Exhibition May 7-13 to Celebrate H Street History

H Street NE has been a destination and commercial corridor in D.C. for decades. However, it is just now experiencing an economic revitalization and cultural shift away from its historical roots. To celebrate everything that makes up this vibrant corridor, we are calling on photographers who want to share photographs old and new.

H Street’s rich history and culture make it a unique and energetic street that continues to attract development, sometimes at the expense of preservation. We are currently experiencing a collision of art and culture in this fast-changing neighborhood and want to document this fleeting moment in time through a collection of photographs.

We are calling on professional photographers, amateur photographers and iphoneographers who want to share photographs old and new. We particularly welcome submissions highlighting the history of H Street and encourage anyone with older and historical photographs to partake in this exhibit. We also welcome creativity in your submissions! Show us what H Street looks like from your perspective and how this mile-long stretch of road connects so many diverse communities.

Submission details:

All submissions must be received by April 8, 2016.
A maximum of 3 entries per photographer will be reviewed
Electronic entries can be submitted for review to: [email protected]

  • Fun idea. H&Pizza has a few old photographs of H St NE on the walls – not sure where they got them, but maybe they would lend them to the Gallery if someone reached out? Or maybe that’s a copyright violation, I don’t really know.
