FotoWeekDC is an annual DC art festival that spans from November 1st through November 10th. The dynamic festival began last Friday with photographers and photography lovers alike gathering in the courtyard of the National Geographic museum to soak in the work of FotoDC winners.

I silently begged to the art gods to please explain the back-stories of the images. But that’s the beauty of these photos; they are awe-inspiring and make you ask “why?” Here are my favorites from the Courtyard exhibit.

Bust out your Saturday best and take in a show at one of these premiere Washington DC theaters.
