Courtesy of Citybizlist – The A. Aubrey Bodine collection of over 7,000 original silver gelatin prints has been released by the Baltimore Sun’s archivists. All prints are unframed and of various sizes and condition. As these are original prints, many include titles and handwritten notes by Bodine and other Sun staff members. The prints will go up for auction on Saturday, November 19 at 11 a.m. at Alex Cooper Auctioneers, 908 York Road in Towson.
A. Aubrey Bodine spent his entire 50-year career at the Baltimore Sun. He is widely regarded as one of the finest pictorialist photographers of the 20th century. Many of his photos were published in the Baltimore Sun’s Sunday Magazine. His photographs captured life in a way that few could. He features Baltimore City, the entire state of Maryland and surrounding states, from the 1920’s until his death in 1970. They include portraits of famous people, as well as people at home and work, through daily life and at special occasions. They include streetscapes, landscapes, and waterscapes concentrating on the Chesapeake Bay.
