"Moments Noticed" is an amazing collection of vintage 35mm street photography. The images were captured in 1970’s by DC artist, Benedict Tisa, while serving in the Peace Corps in Africa & Bangladesh. The majority of the prints are 40+ years old and were processed on location. Tisa revisited his original negative collection & has printed 4 large-scale images for this show. Prints are available for purchase.

Tisa explains, “My camera was a sketchbook, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity as Henri Cartier-Bresson once said. I was noticing moments and people that passed by me.”
