The Reston Historic Trust & Museum is hosting an evening with Reston photographer Charlotte Geary. Geary will present a slideshow and discussion of Reston photographs at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, February 12, 2020, at the Reston Community Center at Lake Anne. Since moving to Reston nine years ago, Charlotte has felt impelled to photograph the lifestyle and scenery of this community. What makes Reston particularly appealing to a photographer? Charlotte will discuss the influence of Reston’s unique aesthetics, opportunities, and people.

In addition to her own contemporary images, Charlotte will present historic photos from the Reston Museum’s collection to demonstrate consistent themes in photos of Reston over the years. She will also offer tips for taking great photos of places and people, with suggestions for photographers of any skill level. Program is free and open to the public. Programs of the Reston Historic Trust & Museum are supported in part by Reston Community Center.
