About the Exhibition
Over the past few decades Baltimore has struggled with fragmentation. Rather than seen as a unified city, Baltimore is instead viewed as a grouping of disparate neighborhoods. However, art has the power to transcend limiting imagined identities. The photographs of Robert Houston celebrate the underlying essence of humanity embodied by each and every one of us.
