From the preface by Roy Slade: "'The Nation's Capital in Photographs, 1976' is an unprecedented Bicentennial project originated by The Corcoran Gallery of Art. Eight eminent American photographers have been invited to spend extended periods -- at least a month -- in Washington, D.C. during 1975-76 to photograph the city, its environs and people, as each was guided by his own vision. Thus we hoped to achieve a diversified documentation of a place and time. A selection of four prints by each artist is to be earmarked for exhibition at the Corcoran in the Tricentennial year 2076. The participating artists ... are Lewis Baltz, Joe Cameron, Robert Cumming, Roy DeCarava, Lee Friedlander, John Gossage, Jan Groover and Anthony Hernandez. The artists were selected by Chief Curator Jane Livingston and Assistant Curator Frances Fralin."
