Baltimore Ruins and Baltimore Vibes:
Shae McCoy, Divinagracia, and Dominic Green

Shae McCoy's inspirational journey takes us to capturing the haunting beauty of West Baltimore's abandoned structures. The silent echoes of forgotten buildings reveal a powerful narrative of urban transformation and resilience. In "Baltimore Ruins and Baltimore Vibes", Shae McCoy's work stands as a testament to her unwavering dedication to shining a spotlight on the blight born from divestment and disenfranchisement in Baltimore City. With every photograph, she seeks to fixate our gaze on the neglected remnants of a community, igniting a sense of urgency and empathy within her audience.

To complement McCoy's impressive oeuvre, the project has enlisted the extraordinary talents of Baltimore-based artists Divinagracia and Dominic Green. These artists further elaborate and expand upon the visual storytelling McCoy has pioneered in the realm of photography. Together, they offer a harmonious blend of perspectives, revealing the multifaceted beauty and complexity of a city in transition.

"Baltimore Ruins and Baltimore Vibes" is not just a visual journey; it's a testament to the power of art to shed light on the forgotten corners of our cities and the resilient spirit of their inhabitants. In this collaborative effort, McCoy, Divinagracia, and Dominic Green invite us to reevaluate our perceptions and to see the hidden grace in the ruins of Baltimore.
