Our guest is photographer Kike Arnal, featuring his newest book "In the Shadow of Power." Mr. Arnal originally came to Washington to do a photo project on Washington's decaying library system. While he was here, he began to see a side of the Capital city much different than that seen in tourist photos. The book documents poverty, drug abuse, AIDS, and prostitution in Washington. It also contrasts those images with photos of "official" Washington, including the monuments and people in power. In addition to still photography, Mr. Arnal has also produced 13 documentaries. He is originally from Venezuela.

Author Kike Arnal and Ralph Nader will discuss and sign "In the Shadow of Power". "In the Shadow of Power" is a shocking visual exposé of the harsh social and economic realities in the capital city of the richest nation on earth. Washington, D.C., is much more than its tourist destinations, and Venezuelan-born photographer Kike Arnal's book describes a search for that other city: a city that, incredibly, has the nation's highest infant mortality, teenage pregnancy and AIDS infection rates, and where 16 percent of local children live in extreme poverty. Foreword by Fred Ritchin. Introduction by Ralph Nader.

The Event is free and open to all.
