SOWEBO/SOWETO PHOTO EXHIBIT

Sowebo Soweto Gallery 788 opening

Sowebo Soweto Gallery 788 opening

Last evening Gallery 788 in Hampden opened its month-long exhibit Sowebo/Soweto which features work by the preeminent and universally-beloved photographer Martha Cooper.

For a number of years Martha has been documenting street life in Southwest Baltimore. In this exhibit she illustrates and demonstrates the similarities of life in Southwest Baltimore (Sowebo) and the Southwest Townships (Soweto) in Johannesburg, South Africa. You will find the similarities striking and the photos quite evocative. I particularly enjoyed her step sitter series. Baltimoreans love to sit on their front stoops.

Artists came from New York, Baltimore, and places in between to show support for and appreciation of Martha, who has photographed them over the years: Chris Stain, Katey Truhn and Jessie Unterhalter, Logan Hicks, Nether, Pablo Machioli, Richard Best, Toven, and many more.

The Soweto/Soweto show runs through February 28th at Gallery 788, 3602 Hickory Avenue, Hampden. More information about Gallery 788 here.
