From National Velvet to Cleopatra, Elizabeth Taylor movies are beloved classics. The actress was also know for giving back through numerous charitable donations and her nonprofit, The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.  This year, I had the honor of photographing two events honoring Liz
Check presentation to Lost-n-Found Youth.

First, The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, in partnership with Macy's, gave $25,000 to Lost-n-Found Youth, an Atlanta-based nonprofit to end homelessness among LGBTQ youth.

Next, I was invited to photograph the grand opening of Liz, a block-long mixed-use development by Fivesquares Development and Whitman-Walker Health System on 14th Street NW between R and Riggs streets.  The development, named for the Elizabeth Taylor Medical Center, includes 78 apartments, office and retail space,  as well as room for cultural activities and outdoor gatherings.

The bedrooms have great views at Liz.

With a view like this, you may never want to leave Liz.

While the beloved actress and philanthropist has passed on, her legacy lives on.
