Maitreya Moore (aka Mahogany Mama) is a West Philadelphia artist known for her street photography and beautiful portraits. For "The Uncommon Criminal" exhibit, Maitreya decided to showcase well-known individuals who don't quite fit the mold of your average criminal.
The Uncommon Criminal exhibit is currently on display at The Urban Art Gallery, located at 262 S. 52nd Street in Philadelphia, PA. The exhibit runs until May 1st and every piece is available for purchase.
