Inner City Youth

Urban Youth

In Baltimore, Maryland’s urban areas, nine out of ten children at City Springs School in 1997-98 were from families struggling at or below the poverty line. Berkeley spent three months documenting their lives at school. In addition, in Washington, DC, Berkeley photographed Washingtonian magazine’s cover story on the urban poor, “A Child is a Terrible Thing to Waste.” This feature article was nominated for the National Magazine Award.
