A. Aubrey Bodine, newspaper photographer, pictorialist, modernist, and documentarian, was a Baltimore Sunday Sun feature photographer from 1924 to 1970. He left an archive of photographs, chronicling mid-twentieth century American life, of people doing all kinds of work. Bodine’s images of heavy industry document an era passed. This book contains a wide range of award winning and historically significant images, many not seen since they were published in the Sun. These pictures demonstrate Bodine’s extraordinary depth and breadth as a photographic artist. This is the third Bodine picture book assembled by his daughter, Jennifer. Their previous collaborations are Bodine’s Chesapeake Bay Country and Bodine’s City.
