Welcome to the MICA Photography Department
MICA Photo is proud to announce the release of a new book by alum, Rose Marie Cromwell. Rose sent us a note recently to update us on her recent string of successes:
“I’m thrilled to announce the pre-sale of my first book: “El Libro Supremo de la Suerte”, which will be published early this spring by TIS Books. A very limited number of books are available at a discounted price, so I urge you to order yours today! The project was shortlisted for the Mack First Book Prize and was featured in the British Journal of Photography’s “Ones To Watch” issue earlier this year.
I’m also honored to have been selected to exhibit work at the Prizm Art Fair in Miami Dec. 5-17, during Art Basel.
Below you can see installation images from the first exhibition of El Libro Supremo de la Suerte, at the Antítesis Art Space in Panama City, Panama this past August.

The Maryland Historical Society (MdHS) is proud to announce the opening of “Unscripted Moments: The Life and Photography of Joseph Kohl”, an exhibition celebrating one of Baltimore’s most distinctive and forward-looking photographers.
“Unscripted Moments: The Life and Photography of Joseph Kohl”, showcases Baltimore in the 1980s and 1990s through the extraordinary eye of local photographer Joseph Kohl (1957-2002). Saved from the landfill and sent to MdHS by exhibit curator Linda Day Clark and her husband, the late photographer Carl Clark, the photos in Unscripted Moments provide a invaluable and evocative record of the city drawn from Kohl’s professional work and personal snapshots, including many images never before published or exhibited. Subjects range from political protests, sidewalk scenes, and animal curiosities to the nighttime world of sex workers, BDSM play, and the underground music scene. Kohl’s warmly rendered portraits of friends, models, and strangers are a highlight of the show. Like a time capsule from the end of the last century, Unscripted Moments offers a whirlwind panorama of city life during the Schaefer, Schmoke, and O’Malley years. What emerges is a vision of Baltimore that’s open-hearted and raw, cosmopolitan and compassionate — and a portrait of a photographer who exposed his love for the city and all its variety in every shot.
An opening party will be held on Thursday, November 9 from 6:30 to 9:30 P.M. at the Maryland Historical Society’s France Hall. Music will be provided by local DJ Landis Expandis. Beer will be served by Waverly Brewing Company, with themed light fare and a signature cocktail for the evening prepared by Chef Shirlé Hale-Koslowski of Four Corners Cuisine and Baby’s On Fire cafe. Tickets are free for MdHS members and $20 for nonmembers.
A satellite exhibition will also appear at The Windup Space (12 North Avenue) throughout the month of November, featuring photos not on display at the MdHS main exhibit. MdHS will host a night of photography, music, and drinks to accompany the exhibition on Thursday, November 17 beginning at 7 P.M. at The Windup Space. The event will feature light refreshments and a cash bar. Admission is free.
The curators of Unscripted Moments include Linda Day Clark, nationally-exhibited photographer and Professor of Fine of Arts at Coppin State University; J.M. Giordano, photo editor at Baltimore City Paper and award-winning photojournalist; Josh Sisk, award-winning professional arts and culture photographer; and Joe Tropea, filmmaker and Curator of Films & Photographs at MdHS.

Helen Glazer spent seven weeks exploring the Antarctic wilderness with her camera, informed by scientific insights into the complex interactions of wind and water that shape the landscape. The exhibition of photographs and of sculptures based on 3D scans, takes the viewer over frozen lakes, around massive glaciers and over the sea ice, into a magnificent frozen ice cave, up gravel-covered windswept mountains, and through a lively colony of Adélie penguins.

New Image Art is pleased to present WITH YOU, a group exhibition curated by Theresa Chromati featuring work byFaith Couch, Derrick Adams, Elliott Jerome BrownJr, Naudline Pierre, Alexandria Smith, Devin N. Morris, Yetunde Olagbaju, and GraceLynne.
Theresa Chromati often explores partnership by capturing community in her work. In this group exhibition, “With You” Chromati has chosen works that focus on various forms of partnership from several artists. Chromati is interested in ways artists view partnership through conversation, support, and relationship. For example, Elliott Jerome Brown Jr,TBD (Kenny on the Hill), one distant figure that exhibits partnership between the images themselves. Although there are multiple images, they work together to illustrate time within a single setting. Additional works contribute examples of conversation, such as two arms depicted mirroring one another arranging a call and response in Beach Series, No Iby Faith Couch.
Each piece of work supports one another forming dialogue that welcomes you in, creating a partnership between audience and artists as well.
Faith Couch was born in Durham, North Carolina in 1997. Couch works predominantly in the medium of photography and video art. Her work highlights themes dealing with race, gender, sexuality and nationality. Couch is currently attending Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore MD, where she will complete her Bachelors of Fine Art in Photography.
An opening reception for the artists will be held on Sat, November 4th, from 7 to 10 pm
