"This volume is not only a beautiful book of paintings, but also an anthropological look at Baltimore City during the decades of the 1970-90's. Mr. Voshell recorded the people and street scenes where he called home with his camera and paintbrushes, looking in depth into the daily routines of his neighbors and the city. It's a fascinating look into Baltimore's past and the artist who claimed this city as his own.
Mr. Waters is a thorough researcher of his subject and his high regard for the artist and his artwork is most apparent. This project is a remarkable gesture for a former student to bestow upon his teacher."

"Jim's talent as a photo-realist painter is incredible and his work, from city images to the garden vegetables that he grew himself on the farm, are well beyond the norm. I never met anyone like him who has the knowledge of a master of his medium and the patience to produce time-intensive works like his." ~Kathy Marten
