Devin Allen, "Rising/Uprising in Baltimore: A Beautiful Ghetto"
On view at CSREA, 96 Waterman Street through May 2017
Monday - Friday, 9:00AM - 5:00PM
In the weeks following the death of Freddie Gray, Devin Allen’s photographs gave voice to his city’s pain during one of its darkest hours. His images of Baltimore document the struggle and humanity of protest, as well as the beauty found in community and everyday life. Born and raised in West Baltimore, Devin will reflect on his personal trials and tribulations, life before and after the 2015 uprising, and the issues that plague his city and many other ghettos across America.
