Lost Boys: Amos Badertscher’s Baltimore labels

A note on the labels

Texts accompanying the object labels for the photographs in this exhibition are in Badertscher’s own words, as documented by his handwritten inscriptions on the prints and in interviews conducted by consulting curator Hunter O’Hanian, who has compiled and condensed the texts. Colloquialisms as well as inconsistencies in spelling and grammar have been maintained to reflect Badertscher’s writing style. We have tried to present the texts alongside their corresponding photographs as space has allowed, however, in some instances, the texts can be found in the laminated guides available within the gallery and below.
