Federal Hill Photography,LLC awarded photo contest grand prize

I am delighted to announce a photograph I submitted to Baltimore Museum of Industry’s (BMI) Baltimore Then & Now photo contest has been awarded a grand prize. My image will also be part of the BMI‘s Baltimore Then & Now exhibition, opening on Friday, February 5, 2016 at the BMI. The Baltimore Museum of Industry is the home of the Baltimore Gas and Electric archival collection, which consists of approximately 80,000 photographs and negatives taken as part of BGE’s daily operations, and capture Baltimore’s workplaces, cityscapes, and life in Baltimore from the late 1920s through 2001. The photographs document the changing commercial, cultural, and physical landscape of the region. Nearly 10,000 of the photos are digitized and are available to view online, free of charge, through the museum’s website. Contest participants could select one or more images from the collection and photograph the location as it appears today. Grand prize winners were selected from hundreds of entries. It was a fascinating opportunity to see how Baltimore has changed over the years. Below are the images I submitted alongside the BGE collection image I selected. The grand prize winner is first. Please select an image to view a larger size. All images from the collection are reproduced here with permission.
