Collection of work from the last year or so.
We were there as observers and by-passers, arriving 2 days after the events of April 27th.
What we saw was a city in the aftermath of tension - and its people still trying to work through it - that process still continues today.
It is a complicated situation - and an extremely fragile thing to document - but within the current narrative, we saw humanity and kindness on both sides of the spectrum - a deep love from the people (both cop and civilian) for their community and city.
The title 'OUR FUTURE IS IN BALTIMORE' is from the words of Ray Lewis to the city of Baltimore, in his clip 'GO HOME' - words that were etched in my mind as we were driving through the streets of Baltimore.
Thanks to Jared Knecht, Andy Caterisano, Paige DeMarco and Jon Bregel for help capturing what we saw.
Thanks to Sal Malfitano for the grade
