Publisher's Description

Federal City is the third installment in Louie Palu’s ongoing critically acclaimed self-published newspaper series, which examines the many layers of the United States. Here are excerpts from his essay and the instructional text on all his newspapers:

This is a concept newspaper, it has no competing articles or advertising. It is the third publication in a series as part of an editing project using photographs taken by Louie Palu in Washington, D.C. during the presidencies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama. None of these photographs were taken as assignments for any publications, this was an independently produced project from 2007-2017. This concept is a newspaper to be dismantled and re-edited to your view of what you think the story should look like. It is also an exhibition that can be hung anywhere you choose. You are the editor and curator.

Looking past the façade of the federal government in Washington, D.C., the architecture of the White House and Capitol Hill have become defining images of U.S. identity and political power. Wars have been declared, international trade deals signed, domestic and foreign policy made. The World Bank and International Monetary Fund are headquartered there. Almost every country in the world has an embassy or some form of representation in D.C., yet no connection to many of the city's longtime residents. It’s as if there are two different cities within one being forced to live together. In one version of Washington, we see familiar images of the federal government. The other version, which we rarely see, includes some communities of people who live in the city who have no direct connection to the federal government.
