Gallery O on H (1354 H St. NE) in March asked local photographers to share old and new photographs for a new exhibition called “Portraits of H Street Now and Then.” Those photos will finally be unveiled Saturday night at 7 p.m., according to the gallery’s website.

Gallery OonH H Street Photo Exhibition May 7-13 to Celebrate H Street History
H Street NE has been a destination and commercial corridor in D.C. for decades. However, it is just now experiencing an economic revitalization and cultural shift away from its historical roots. To celebrate everything that makes up this vibrant corridor, we are calling on photographers who want to share photographs old and new.
H Street’s rich history and culture make it a unique and energetic street that continues to attract development, sometimes at the expense of preservation. We are currently experiencing a collision of art and culture in this fast-changing neighborhood and want to document this fleeting moment in time through a collection of photographs.
