Summer Of The Gun: Baltimore's Violence In Black And White

Kojo explores the stories behind the sobering new "Summer of the Gun" photo series in Baltimore's City Paper.

After a lull in violence, homicides in Baltimore have soared this summer, with 16 killed over a 10-day period in June alone. As weary Baltimore residents absorb the near-daily coverage of killings in their city, one photographer is going beyond the usual crime tape images to illustrate what happens to communities after the police go home. Kojo explores the stories behind a sobering new photo series in Baltimore's City Paper.
