Cleveland Park

Cleveland Park manages to feel safe, wholesome, and peaceful while never coming across as ordinary.

The blue bloods of Washington inhabit the side streets of green, gently rolling Cleveland Park. While suburban-style barbecues and dinner parties often serve as the centerpiece of this village-within-a-city’s social life, its energetic denizens often wander to the host of the bright eateries and casual watering holes along Connecticut Avenue.  Parks, playgrounds, and well-lit streets make for a consummately family-friendly atmosphere.

As a freelance photographer based out of DC, I’ve had a lifelong desire to be submerged in different cultures, meet people of all walks of life, and eat bizarre foods. While my personal favorite escape is surfing remote warm-water breaks in Central America, I loved working on this project and discovering the many hidden subcultures that make up the diverse and often-mislabeled city of Washington, D.C.
