Kyle Pompey, known to some as ‘Nice Shot Kyle,’ takes a no-frills approach to his Baltimore street photography; he just shoots what he sees. And sometimes having trouble expressing himself verbally, Pompey has leaned on his images to speak for him.
Kathleen Kline can get busy photographing bands and events, but she always makes time for street work. As a Baltimore street photographer, Kline covered the riots in April to give a citizen’s perspective of the events. And we filmed at the place where she gets her inspiration: Graffiti Alley.

American photographer, Diane Arbus, was born in New York City on March 14, 1923 to David Nemerov and Gertrude Russek Nemerov, a Jewish couple who owned Russek’s, a famous Fifth Avenue department store.

Most people go through life dreading they’ll have a traumatic experience. Freaks were born with their trauma. They’ve already passed their test in life. They’re aristocrats.”
