DC Undercover: Photographs by Steven M. Cummings

Steven Cummings' passion is photographing people in and around the city—who as it turns out, often wear caps and hats. In one section of DC Undercover, he captures the images of those engaged in a variety of daily activities, including attending church, youthful play, and neighborhood shopping. Cummings also photographed African American women who attended a special Hat Tea that was held at the 5. These images attest to the special bond that is often forged between a hat and its proud wearer.
