Visions of Night

Baltimore Nocturnes–Opening April 29, 2022

Artists have been creating visions of nighttime for centuries. Photographers started attempting to document the night sky at the advent of the medium, but truly successful attempts did not come to fruition or common practice until the 1930s, when technology caught up with artistic vision. Visions of Night will showcase photographs taken at night in the city from the collections of the Maryland Center for History and Culture, as well as contemporary photography, including the work of co-curator J. M. Giordano, Sydney Allen, John Clark Mayden, and others.

Keith’s Theatre, 114 West Lexington Street, Baltimore, photograph by John Dubas, 1934. Maryland Center for History and Culture, H. Furlong Baldwin Library, Baltimore City Life Museum Collection.
