DC Photo Book: An Insider’s View of Washington, DC​​​​   (Retail $39.95)

An Insider’s View (Third Edition) is a full-color photographic book featuring photographs of DC spanning three decades. The photographs are exclusive images taken by Stephen R. Brown on assignment for national and international magazines. The newest editon adds forty-four pages and several new Memorials to the book and features portfolios on the WWII Memorial, the Korea Memorial, Vietnam Memorial and new page on both Arlington and the Women's Memorial.

The book has been featured on the White House News Photographers Association Site, WTTG Fox Washington and is supported by an advertising campaign in the local newspapers and a daily news blogs. It is the most complete and up to date survey of the Memorials and neighborhoods in DC and is updated with every printing.

The book will be distributed through the studio and through Honor Flight hubs.  The Holocaust Museum, National Park Service and other outlets will have the book.  With the transition from WWII to Korea and Vietnam by most of the Honor Flight hubs, the additions to the new book include two page spreads on

  • The Disabled American Veterans Memorial
  • The new Smithsonian African American Museum
  • -Eighteen more pages on the WWII Memorial
  • Ten Pages on the Korean Memorail
  • Ten Pages on the Vietnam Memorial
  • Two more pages on the Women in Military Service to America Memorial
  • Four more pages on Arlington Cemetery
  • a page on the Navy Museum in the Navy Yard....rarely visited but quite beautiful
  • a page on Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Dulles

I used all new images and was able to present many images that had never been seen before. The changes are significant enough to label it a completely new book by the Copyright Office.  I've kept the cover because it is iconic Washington.  The back cover was changed for one of my favorite views of the WWII Memorial in the evening.


This is the first book to have the Amerian Disabled Veterans Memorial below and of course the first with the Eisenhower Memorial.


These images of the WWII Memorial and Washington Monument were taken while they were under construction


Colonel William Webber of the Korean War Memorial Foundation was able to negotiate permission to finally make some images of the Korean Memorial.  I am very pleased!


Ebooks are available through both Amazon and Apple Formats.  


The books can be found locally at, Eastern National stores at the FDR, Arlington Cemetery store and the Lincoln Memorail.  They are also available Guest Services stores by the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials. , I've been using an infrared camera to photograph the Cherry Blossoms and expect to do more this Spring.  In May a new book of postcard on the Cherry Blossoms is due out.  A bit late for this year but the Blossoms are ever in demand in DC!
