The Huffington Post has an article under the Arts & Culture section, talking about an exhibition coming to the Leica Store gallery in Washington D.C. called "Sometimes, Street Photography is About Having Faith" that's worth checking out. Be on the look out for the exhibit entitled "Faith" that opens August 9, 2014 and runs through October at the Leica Store gallery in Washington, D.C. The exhibit features the work of the Strata Collective, a group of photographers who are best known for their sharp-edged street photography. The members of the collective include Mike Hicks, Bill Bramble, Matt Dunn, Steve Goldenberg, Hector Isaac, Chris Suspect, Aziz Yazdani, and Joshua Yospyn.
