Picturing Baltimore is made possible through the collective efforts and contributions of a diverse group of individuals, artists, community partners, and sponsors. We are grateful for their invaluable support and dedication to making this project a reality. Here are some of the talented collaborators who have played a crucial role in shaping the project:

Rebecca Marimutu ︎︎︎

Rebecca Marimutu is a photographer and educator from New York City, based in Baltimore. Her artistic practice explores self, identity, and material tactility through photography, collage, paper sculpture, and audio-visual abstraction. Her work looks to divest from the traditional photography canon by emphasizing contemporary artists interrogating the medium’s history. She received her MFA in 2020 from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Photographic and Electronic Media, with a concentration in Critical Studies.

She's the founder and director of Anchovy Press, an independent publishing company based in Baltimore, dedicated to storytelling that centers BIPOC experiences.

Darius Fox ︎︎︎

Darrius Fox is a 28-year-old photographer from Baltimore, MD. He is a self-taught artist, initially working as a wedding photographer before transitioning to film photography. Fox currently maintains a studio at the Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower. His photographs range from urban landscapes and portraiture to street scenes of everyday life

Rhea Beckett ︎︎︎

Rhea Beckett, an curator with a keen eye for highlighting underrepresented voices, is a  crucial collaborator durring this project. With her expertise and commitment to inclusivity, Rhea ensures that the art show represents the diversity and depth of Baltimore's artistic community.

Joseph Orzal ︎︎︎ 

Joseph Orzal (Ignacio Joseph Orzal or JoJo-Beans) is a Filipino-Mexican American painter, sculptor, chess player and writer active in DC, Atlanta, New York, and Toronto. His Works, which combine a realistic observation of the human state, both physical and emotional, with a dramatic use of lighting usually explore palpable yet unspoken intricacies of racial, sexual, and class distinctions in Western societies, and their inevitable if unnameable tensions. He is a formative influence on the revolutionary developments in the plastic arts in the opening decades of the twenty-first century, responsible for significant developments in painting, sculpture, and social practice. After his glorious departure from the Corcoran gallery of Art for which he was part of the notorious Save the Corcoran group, he co-founded the infamous NoMüNoMü, a revolutionary intersectional artistic organization active in the United States working towards liberation for broader society from perpetual systems of oppression and class domination that permeate throughout the so called white mans so called art world.

Anysa Saleh ︎︎︎ 

Anysa Saleh was born and raised in the central valley of California. She is best known for her short videos and photographs documenting her experience as a Yemeni Muslim woman in the United States.

Saleh later moved to the Bay Area, where she attended California College of the Arts. She moved to the east coast in 2016 and has exhibited in the United States and abroad.
