Bodine's City : The Photography of A. Aubrey Bodine Hardback
A. Aubrey Bodine was a Baltimore Sunday Sun feature photographer for 43 years.
The 154 images displayed here were shot within a four mile radius of where he lived or worked.
The subject matter of these powerful images is exclusively Baltimore, and yet this is not a Baltimore picture book.
The reason these photos transcend their geographical bounds is that Bodines subject matter varied wildly, demonstrating the versatility of Bodine as an artist.
Bodine is called a pictorialist, but he is much more than that one defining label.
He photographed people, animals, buildings, harsh weather conditions, textures, geometric patterns, and cityscapes, devoting his life to elevating photography to an art form.
He was famous for his dark room magic. Changes to any photograph occurred in the darkroom and they were all done by hand.
