Baltimore Lives In Black And White

John Clark Mayden
JHU Press

For nearly fifty years, John Clark Mayden has viewed life through a distinctive lens. His black-and-white photographs capture ordinary moments--passengers riding the bus, weary workers pausing for a break-and spark our curiosity. When was this photo taken? Where are these people now?

Mayden tells us how he got his start, and how his style changed over time. 

You can see Mayden's photos at the George Peabody Library, now through March 1, 2020. There is talk celebrating the exhibit and a book launch at Peabody on Sunday, Oct 27, at 4:30 pm. The event is free and open to the public.

Or you can check him out at the Baltimore Book Festival on November 3rd at 3 pm at the Ivy Bookshop stage.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is Senior Supervising Producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
