Apr. 8-May 31: A New Context: Photographs from The Baltimore Sun Revisited

Before memory cards and camera phones, photographers developed, printed and edited photos by hand. Instructions on how to crop or enhance a photo were never intended for public eyes, but a new exhibit at the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery at The University of Maryland, Baltimore County lets visitors see the process behind the final product. A New Context: Photographs from The Baltimore Sun Revisited features edited news photographs from the past. The exhibit runs through May 31.
