Photobook: What’s Past is Prologue

What's Past is Prologue statue, National Archives in Washington DC, 2015 Amy Cools

Future, 1935, by sculptor Robert Ingersoll Aitken, at the National Archives building in Washington, D.C.. The inscription is from William Shakespeare’s line ‘What’s past is prologue’ from The Tempest, Act 2, Scene I, spoken by Antonio as he and Sebastian plot the murder of Alonso, King of Naples

I took this photograph while in Washington D.C. in April 2015 following the life and ideas of Thomas Jefferson; to read more about Jefferson and our nation’s capital, click here.
