It comprises several big-ticket embassies, rows of well-to-do businesses along Wisconsin Avenue, and a variety of professionals in its cute, well-manicured row houses. Residents of Glover Park are proud of their neighborhood’s distinct character and devote considerable effort to maintaining its reputation as one of DC’s safest and most lively neighborhoods.

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.
