Taking Portraits in Baltimore’s Graffiti Alley

Graffiti Alley, as far as I’m aware, is the only block in Baltimore, MD where it’s legal to spray paint buildings. Local artists took advantage and created one of the best portrait backdrops in the city.

Located in Station North, an eclectic arts district that’s home to indie movie theaters, great restaurants, and the Maryland Institute College of Art, Graffiti Alley is easy to access via I-83 or Charles and St. Paul’s Streets. (Hint: it’s right across the street from Popeye’s.) Due to the location’s rising popularity, you’ll likely find other people there taking photos. We went on a weekday afternoon, and even then there were people around. Still, though, it wasn’t crowded, and the tall walls made it easy to avoid the harsh midday sun. What else could you ask for from a portrait spot?
