The Baltimore Museum of Industry (BMI) presents an exhibit of photographs taken by Baltimore Sun pictorialist A. Aubrey Bodine. The exhibit, Bodine’s Industry: The Dignity of Work runs from October 15, 2013 to February 6, 2014.
Born in Baltimore in 1906, A. Aubrey Bodine spent 47 years working as a photographer for the Baltimore Sun. As part of his job, Bodine traveled throughout the region documenting the events, people, and places that captured his eye. Not content as a newspaper photographer only, Bodine submitted many of his photos in international salons and exhibitions; he won numerous awards for his work, and published his photos in books and other mediums.
Jennifer Bodine, daughter of A. Aubrey Bodine brings her father’s legacy back to the BMI with Bodine’s Industry: The Dignity of Work. The exhibit’s collection of 70 prints will highlight a bygone period of Maryland industry. From oystermen to fire eating clowns, the exhibit will feature classic and lesser-known Bodine photographs that capture the essence of 20th century work.
