Amy Berbert, (double concentration in Photography and Graphic Design), was featured in multiple news outlets for her photographic project in which she visits sites in Baltimore city where homicides occurred, exactly one year later and she takes a night photograph of the location. This beautiful and somber photographic series is a moving testament to the grieving that never stops when a loved one dies.

Amy will be taking a photograph of the location of all 320 homicides reported in Baltimore in 2016, at the one year anniversary of each. She will continue this project until the end of 2017, as her Senior thesis project. She hopes to publish a book of the photographs.
