Not just the second amateur photographer to grace the cover of Time magazine with his photo of the Baltimore Uprising in 2015, Devin Allen has TWICE made the cover!  An outstanding street photographer, Devin has also embraced painting and sculpture.  His new multi-media exhibit “A Piece of Me Died With You” reflects on the losses of friends and is currently set in the Julio Fine Arts Gallery at Loyola University in Maryland will be up through March 27th.  Devin was named the first Gordon Parks Fellow in 2017 and continues to receive acclaim and awards that belie his self-taught skills.  His work is found in the National Museum of African American History & Culture, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, and the Studio Museum in Harlem.  Locally, Devin is committed to Baltimore, and accessibility.  When creating his books he wanted them to be affordable and worked with the publishers to make that possible. As a mentor he founded Through Their Eyes, a youth photography educational program that works within Baltimore city schools.

Following the success of his first book, A Beautiful Ghetto, is No Justice, No Peace, was released in 2022.  A third book is in the works, listen in for more details!
