True Grit

Curated by Jonathan Hanson, in collaboration with Full Circle Photo Gallery and the American Society of Media Photographers

October 4 - November 1, 2014


Full Circle Gallery, in coordination with Thrive at Jordan Faye Contemporary is pleased to announce, TRUE GRIT, an exhibition to launch Jordan Faye Contempoary's latest program and new exhibition center. Jonathan Hanson, ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) Baltimore chapter president, curates this collection of works from photographers whose main interest is telling Baltimore's story from a street level view. With the psyche of a blue collar, hard working, hard living town, Baltimore offers a truly unique urban experience, representations of which echo in the conversation, history, lifestyle, and contemporary self-image of its inhabitants. The true grit of this town is in its shear willingness to keep going. Baltimore can be raw; it can be charming; it can be dangerous. It can also be very, very sweet. TRUE GRIT will touch on the narratives of life in Charm City rather than the iconic and ballyhooed.
