The Fred Schnider Gallery of Art recently announced its newest exhibit from DC photographer, Sam Kittner, “A Broader Sense of Place.” The exhibit begins on July 20th and will run through September 8th (Thursdays through Sundays from 2-7 pm).

“A Broader Sense of Place,” is part of Kittner’s quest to create panoramas that dynamically portray perspective and relationships, drawing the viewer deeper into the scene at hand. Much of the photography captures dramatic photographs of DC’s most symbolic places and features.

“I love iconic landmarks like the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument in Washington, DC but for years I couldn’t bring myself to photograph those destinations,” says Sam Kittner. “To capture such beloved and memorable places in a new and worthy manner was overwhelming. I had to overcome the feeling that every song was already written and every picture already taken.”

Kittner’s work has  been displayed at the Newseum, Corcoran Gallery of Art and Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. His work has been recognized by the leading commercial graphics trade publications, Communication Arts and Photo District News.
