As both photographers and engaged citizens, the members of Strata Collective explore the notions of faith and the things people hold onto in times of uncertainty, whether it be God, country, communities, resources, family, or ideas. We’ve seen these struggles play out in towns and cities across the country – human dramas that unfold in the street. It’s on the street that faith is proclaimed, tested, reinforced and abandoned, against the backdrop of a rapidly changing American landscape.
This collection represents both new and previously exhibited photographs by the Strata Collective, specially curated for this exhibition under the theme of “Faith”.
Opening August 9th, 6-9pm at the Leica Store DC.

Recently, Mike Hicks was supposed to take an afternoon flight out of LaGuardia International Airport. What initially promised to be an hour’s wait at the gate turned into an all-nighter at the terminal, as flights everywhere were subject to delays and cancellations and the area hotels filled to capacity with stranded travelers. Stuck at the airport with his luggage and a camera, he made this multimedia piece about waiting for a flight that never shows up.
