If Shakespeare Had A Camera....
The Shakespeare Theatre Company will exhibit a selection of images created by world-travelling photographer Nina Dunn, who brings 24 works from her European collection to the Sidney Harman Hall from March 28 through June 2.
Dunn’s photographs will be displayed and offered for sale during the run of the company’s Hero/Traitor Repertory featuring the productions Coriolanus and Wallenstein. Sidney Harman Hall is at 610 F Street NW.
Dunn’s work translates the beauty and spirit of Shakespeare’s Europe through vivid photographs taken from unconventional perspectives, said a Shakespeare Theater Group statement.
“I am excited to use this exhibition to help the Shakespeare Theater Company and honored to have my work shown in this spectacular venue,” said Dunn who resides in the DC Palisades neighborhood.
Dunn has a fine artistic eye which it comes to highlighting light, color and shape to create graphic details with show-stopping results.
Ed Zakreski, STC’s chief development officer, says, “the passion Nina has for her photography is clearly visible. We are thrilled that she has chosen to generously use her talent to benefit the theater.”
All proceeds from the purchase of the framed photos and acrylics will benefit the artistic and education programs of the Shakespeare Theatre Company. Dunn is a STC patron and Bard Association member.
Dunn has practiced her photography alongside her practice of law, which includes a range of international trade and investment, securities law and national security matters.
She has traveled the world for her legal work and to pursue her devotion to photography.
