In the fall of 2011, I raised over $5,000 through Kickstarter and in 2012 I received a $3,000 grant from the Maryland State Arts Council to photograph ten main streets in Baltimore: Howard, Eutaw, Fayette, Baltimore, Lexington, Pennsylvania, Greenmount, North, Broadway, and Monument. My photography is meant to leave you not only with a sense of the condition of our cities, but also a feeling of urgency to see that they are improved and preserved and that the rich history behind the architecture and the community is not lost, but rather embraced.

218-206 West Fayette Street, Winter & Spring 2012.
I drove past this building today and saw that demolition had begun. It was the old Trailways Bus Depot (not to be confused with the old Greyhound Station on the corner of Howard and Centre). Several buildings on this block are being demolished. It will be interesting to see what replaces them. On a positive note, it will open up some space for me to photograph some tall and spectacular buildings across the street.
