The images are as arresting as they are revealing. Most of all, they illustrate the narrative power of great photography. Shot in simple black-and-white, they chronicle life in Maryland from the sublime to the humble and include:
- Master Derby charging past Foolish Pleasure at the finish line to win the Preakness in front of thousands shoe-horned into Old Hilltop in 1975.
- A dramatic lightning strike illuminating the Baltimore skyline during a winter storm in 1954.
- An elegantly dressed young couple enjoying a romantic moonlight excursion aboard an old bay liner in 1938.
These and hundreds of other images make up Maryland Exposed: Iconic Photography of The Baltimore Sun, The Baltimore Sun's newest book of photos that brings into focus Maryland's rich and varied past.
Explore Maryland in focus through the industries, pastimes and places that helped shape life in the Free State.
