Last month Baltimore photographer Devin Allen’s photo of a young man running down the street in front of the police during the Baltimore unrest covered the May 11, 2015 issue of Time Magazine.
Starting in July Devin will have his first solo exhibit at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture.
The West Baltimore photographer whose iconic image of the Freddie Gray unrest made the cover of “Time” magazine is getting his own solo show.
“Devin Allen: Awakenings, In a New Light” will debut on July 7 and will run through Dec. 10 at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture.
When his black and white shot of a man running down the street in front of a line of baton-wielding Baltimore police officers ran in “Time’s” May 11 issue, the twentysomething street photographer became just the third amateur image-maker to see his work on the magazine’s cover.
The photos, some of which will be blown up to more than 20 feet wide, show both the struggle and the humanity of the unrest from the viewpoints of police officers and protestors, according to the museum’s news release.
According to the Baltimore Sun the public will be admitted for free in a new community space where the exhibit will be held.
