You might know local photographer Matthew Parker from the Downtown Holiday Market, Eastern Market, the just closed Artomatic, or from seeing him riding around town in his Art Trike. No matter where you’ve seen Parker before you’ll soon catch him contributing to Frederick Douglass’ Washington: The Lion Of Anacostia.
Here’s a sample photo of Parker’s that blends a historic and well-known image of Frederick Douglass in his library with a contemporary photo of one the Lion’s liars.
Much thanks and appreciation to the folks at the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site for their continued help and support.
…remember that it’s been recently confirmed by historians Zoe Trodd and Celeste-Marie Bernier that Douglass is the most photographed person of the 19th century!
