About the exhibit

Welcome to the National Press Club 2020 members photo exhibit

For 20 years, the members' photography exhibit was an annual highlight at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., with members' print photos and electronic images displayed in the Club's 13th floor atrium lobby for the month of September. In 2020, of course, the pandemic changes everything, and this year the members' images are shown only online beginning in September. But the rich assortment of images, and the stories that go with the images are still on display in this catalog.

The pandemic figures in to many of the images shown in this year's exhibit, but as we've seen in earlier shows, the contributions this year represent a wide range of experiences, interests, and geographic locations. This year's event is the 21st annual exhibit by the Club, and a production of NPC's Photography Committee. Marshall Cohen, who founded the committee also started the exhibit, which later committee chairs Darlene Shields and Al Teich continued each year. Cohen, Shields, and Teich are participants in this year's show as well.

We thank the 49 participants who contributed the 173 images seen in this catalog for their contributions, but also their willingness to take part in the online display. And thanks, of course, to our NPC staff liaison Laura Coker, for keeping the Photo Committee's wheels turning, even in virtual mode, as well as designing another stunning exhibit logo. Let's hope we can all return to the 13th floor of the National Press Building before too long.

Viewing tips

The exhibit catalog includes all images for viewing. There's no separate slide show. The catalog is best viewed on a laptop, desktop, or big-screen monitor. While the exhibit can be viewed on a phone, the images display much better on a larger horizontal screen.

A series of buttons at the bottom of each page helps navigate the exhibit. The Browse Images button takes you to the first photographer on the list, with other buttons on each page pointing to the previous and next photographer. The Photographers button takes you to the list of photographers, to find that person's photos.

Thanks for visiting the 2020 exhibit catalog and enjoy the show
