About the speaker

Devin Allen is a 26 year-old photographer from West Baltimore whose work has recently found the spotlight as he covered the uprising and protests in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray. Most notably, he captured the profound and iconic image that was chosen as the latest cover of Time magazine.

Utilizing social media as his platform, Allen’s pictures captured the raw and fierce emotions of the community, who took the streets to express their frustrations over the killing of yet another black man at the hands of police.

Allen is self-taught and began shooting in only 2013 and focused primarily on fashion and street photography.

    I'm happy you guys skipped ahead to the 'Revolution' theme. I feel like I have been living under a rock and this talk was much needed. Thank you!
