Meet The Photographer Devin Allen

posted by: August 10, 2017 - 7:00am

Cover Art for A Beautiful Ghetto Baltimore native Devin Allen became only the third amateur photographer to have his work featured on the cover of Time Magazine. During the Baltimore uprising in response to the death of Freddie Gray in 2015, Allen was present with his camera and his photographs were quickly viewed around the country. 

 

With his first book of photographs, A Beautiful Ghetto, Allen shares over 100 of his black and white photos of Baltimore. Local author D. Watkins writes the forward, and his publisher notes that, “In these stunning photographs, Allen documents the uprising as he strives to capture the life of his city and the people who live there. Each photo reveals the personality, beauty and spirit of Baltimore and its people, as his camera complicates popular ideas about the ghetto.”

 

Meet Devin Allen at our Randallstown Branch on Wednesday, August 16 at 7 p.m. Allen will talk about his book, his photography and his beloved Baltimore community. Book sales and signings available following the discussion, provided by The Ivy Bookshop.
