While the clouds rolled in for the storm yesterday, I was lucky enough to meet up with Mo Diare to snap some photos in Baltimore’s industrial and surprisingly unpopulated waterfront neighborhood, just west of the inner harbor. Blocks away are crowded with people and all-night establishments, but if you are heading out of Baltimore on Greene St (295) and turn right at one of signals before the highway begins, you’ll end up in a neighborhood filled with abandoned bars, corner stores, and social squares. Most of the buildings have been converted into warehouses that house primarily industrial materials and architecture salvageables.
Mo Diare is a local artist and musician in the Baltimore area, focusing in illustration and graphic design. To check out his art, follow him on tumblr at: http://momadethisshit.tumblr.com/ – and if you’re local to Baltimore be sure to check out his upcoming show at The Crown
Later in the afternoon we headed back to the Copycat and spent hours on the fire escape waiting for the storm to come in. We were joined by Chicago native Victor Agbeo, a local painter and aspiring photographer.
