Baltimore Clean-Up, Curfew, and Tear Gas: Photos

MICA Professor Nate Larson and a group of photography students took to the Baltimore streets near MICA on Tuesday, April 28 to document and help with the clean up efforts after looting and fires from the night before. What they have brought back is a mixture of images, not all positive or all negative, but the reality of Baltimore a day after riots near the intersection of Pennsylvania and North Avenues.

Photos by Nate Larson, Lara Davidson, Zeina Zeitoun, Lynn Hunter, and Kris LaRosa.
