For the past three years I’ve been documenting the underground music scene in Baltimore, Maryland. From the bars to the basements, I have become a part of the community that I’m photographing. Attending multiple shows every week and becoming friends with everyone in the frame of my photos. This collection of prints will showcase the multitude of bands and “venues” that have come and gone within my few short years in Baltimore.

As I furthered my education in photography at MICA by day, I brought these new skills and techniques with me to the next show I attended. Continuously trying different cameras, film formats and lighting equipment to capture this incredible city’s underground music scene. This is not an encyclopedia of the Baltimore music scene, but a selection of bands whose music has inspired me.
