Urban Decay – Life in Baltimore, Maryland

May 26, 2008

Relevant to my final essay topic on urban decay as spectacle in The Wire and The Shield, I found these photos of urban life in Baltimore to be fascinating.

    Gorgeous shots. You could say why you find them fascinating. And always credit the photographer & link to where you found them!

    Thanks machinepeople. I guess i found them fascinating for aesthetic reasons – beautiful, black and white compositions but also for the stories of urban loneliness captured in the shots. This urban loneliness is something that seems to be tied to life in Baltimore, especially after watching The Wire.
