Info: 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.
