Roshani Kothari Photography at Teaism Dupont Circle
Event Date:02 September, 2015
by Roshani Kothari
Join me in this journey not to another country, but to another kingdom--the Plant Kingdom!
Gardening is both rewarding and challenging for me. I am always learning new things. For example, it is so important to continually build and nourish the soil. Gardening is not just about growing plants, but growing the soil. To learn more, check out the film, Symphony of the Soil. Also it is so important to have plants that help to sustain beneficial insects, like bees, to help pollinate crops.
Open-pollinated seeds are vital because they allow people to save seeds. I am appalled at what Monsanto is doing worldwide with their patented seeds and pesticides. They pretend like they are helping farmers, but instead they are wreaking havoc on rural communities worldwide and putting our global food supply in serious jeopardy. To learn more or get involved, check out Seed Savers and Millions Against Monsanto.
I was born in New Delhi, India and grew up in Ahmedabad, Gujarat and later in Houston, Texas. I have traveled to over 30 countries and lived in Thailand, Bolivia, Zimbabwe and El Salvador. My favorite countries are India, Mexico, Ghana, Brazil, Cuba and Turkey. I have lived in DC on and off since 1995.
Musings About Photography
Photography immortalizes the magic of people and places. The flexibility and mobility of the photographic medium lends itself to spontaneous exploration. It helps me to create images from transitory, fleeting moments by freezing them in time. My images may have diverse themes, however, they all have one thing in common–my eye, my way of seeing, and my relationship with people and places.
Some of my images are purely aesthetic, while others are of a documentary nature giving insights into the people and culture of a particular place. Photography allows one to challenge his or her temporary, momentary existence in a two dimensional way. It transforms one’s fleeting existence into “permanent immortality.”

Photographs by Irina Lawton
Event Date:01 April, 2014
Location: Teaism Lafayette Park, 800 Connecticut Ave NW, 202-835-2233 Irina has spent several years living in Asia, Africa, and Europe as a freelance photojournalist. This exhibit features mostly images taken in 2001 in Shanghai, in an area known as Xin Tian Di, which literally mean "new earth and sky". European style buildings of the early 20s and 30s mix with "shikumen" - a traditional form of residence in Shanghai - giving the area a particularly exotic look.

Nan then assembles and reconstructs them on canvas in beautiful harmonies of color and texture.
