Exhibition Tour: Alan Karchmer: The Architects’ Photographer

Join us for an exclusive in-person tour of Alan Karchmer’s exhibition at the National Building Museum—Alan Karchmer: The Architects’ Photographer. This exhibition, curated by Martin Moeller, presents a cross-section of Karchmer’s commissioned photographs, coupled with personal images and artifacts that shed light on his work. While the exhibition features numerous large prints of remarkable beauty, it also includes didactic displays examining the technical and creative processes underlying such images. It thus illuminates why certain images are so successful in expressing both the physical and emotional aspects of architecture.

This tour is organized by the Washington Architectural Foundation with special thanks to the National Building Museum and Alan Karchmer.
