The Prints & Photographs Division will be on hand at this weekend’s National Book Festival (Sept. 22-23). If you’re planning on attending, please look for us in the LC Pavilion.
Our focus will be “reading photographs,” and we’re inviting visitors to participate in a photo captioning game called “What’s My Title?” We’ll be displaying a handful of popularly selected photographs from the collections. Participants can propose a title for one of the pictures or vote on which of the proposed titles they like the best.
We’ll also be featuring some of our online collections, and staff will be available to answer questions.
If you can’t make it to the Washington Mall this weekend (or would like to warm up for the game!), please participate virtually. Below is one of the popular photos we considered displaying at the festival (so many pictures, and only so much space…). What do you think would be a good title for it?
