Baltimore - 1958 | 16 Images

In 1958, at age 16, I would walk about areas of Baltimore, finding images that I was drawn to and needed to record. Some 40 years later, Dean Krimmel, a Baltimore historian, used a 'fire insurance' map from 1954 to identify the location where I stood to record about 50 percent of the pictures. I went back to these locations. Several of the places were torn down and rebuilt, no longer having any resemblance to the original scene. But even for the places that were recognizable, the feeling of the original photographs was completely absent. These images represent an immutable intersection of time and space.
