Streets of Baltimore

For years I did assignment work primarily for schools and hospitals, approaching these assignments with an editorial slant, using black & white tri-x film and printing all images in house. During this time I photographed constantly, whether on assignment or not, looking for images that told a story. Baltimore was just then going through massive renewal, with the ethnic eastern European, and seamen population starting to be replaced with hipsters, artists, and young urban homesteaders. I enjoyed the clash, photographing around the city in an attempt to catch the decisive moment.
