D.C.’s biggest photo exhibition extravaganza, FotoWeekDC, has begun.

If you missed this weekend’s opening event, you now have the chance to see internationally acclaimed photographer Mary Ellen Mark speak at an event Tuesday called, “Nothing’s More Interesting Than Reality.”

Mark, 73, will make her appearance at the Smithsonian American Art Museum to talk about her work, which has been featured in publications such as LIFE, New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair. She has also published 18 books and won the Robert F. Kennedy journalism award three times.

Check-in for the free event begins at 6 p.m., and participants should register online to reserve a seat at the McEvoy Auditorium, where Mark will speak.
