    Thanks

    Chantilly is pretty far outside DC when you don't have a car. Perhaps the hotel services have a shuttle bus service to get to a Metro station.

    You may wish to start with Govinda Gallery located in Georgetown. http://www.govindagallery.com/

    There are many photographic artists displaying and selling their work directly to the public in the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virginia just outside of the DC. http://www.torpedofactory.org/

    Of could during your visit FotoFest DC will be happening, so there will be many things photographic happening. http://www.fotoweekdc.org/index.php?...109&Itemid=223

    Enjoy your visit.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Thanks for you info, that looks interesting

    Effectively, I'd checked on the metro map, the best is probbaly to take an hotel shuttle or a taxi to the Metro Station

    Take a look at the websites for the American Art Museum/National Portrait Gallery http://www.npg.si.edu/exhibit/current.html and http://americanart.si.edu/exhibitions/ - two of the very best museums in DC for photography, and they're in the same building. The National Gallery of Art has a photo department but it's still a bit of the redheaded orphan bastard stepchild of the collection so it doesn't get much love (I'll make an exception for the current Harry Callahan show). FotoWeek DC will be on that weekend, with lots of really cool things happening. Sunday the 6th, there will be an all-day alternative process love-fest at Photoworks Glen Echo (at which I'm one of the presenters, showing platinum prints) but that would be a bit of a challenge to get to if you're not driving, since the streetcar line that went to their front door was taken out in the 1960s. You'd have to take Metro to either Foggy Bottom or to Bethesda and then get at least one bus.
