Britt Olsen-Ecker's 'Photos for Baltimore' Opens Today, 7/20
Britt Olsen-Ecker celebrates 5 years of Baltimore Photography with her premiere photography show, "Photos for Baltimore," making it's debut at the Midtown BBQ & Brew. 'Photos for Baltimore,' a photo series from Britt Olsen-Ecker Photography, was created after 5 years of business in Baltimore.
On some of the longer walks she took around town, Britt would bring along her camera and take photos of her favorite places, favorite buildings, and favorite people. In an effort to promote her love of the city, and the beautiful (and not so beautiful) parts of it, Britt created a Facebook album entitled "Photos for Baltimore." She decided to post one photo per week dedicated to a place that was special to her.
After the overwhelmingly positive response from the community, the Midtown BBQ & Brew (formerly the Midtown Yacht Club) got wind of the album and it's popularity. They extended an invitation to Britt to present a solo show in their upstairs lounge and gallery in July.
All photos will be for sale at the showing.
