Through digital photography, Urban Landscapes: From DC to Denmark exhibition showcases re-gentrified urban neighborhoods in both the District of Columbia and Denmark and the effects of these changes on vulnerable populations residing in these communities. . “Solar panels, green space, bicycles and assimilation; brick, construction, power and gentrification, those are the words that I equate with Denmark and DC,” said exhibit photographer, Kimberly Gaines. “When gentrified neighborhoods and marginalized people have been camouflaged with new store fronts and street signs in DC living, the battlefield has a glossier appearance. This exhibition is about the surfaces."
