Fleming’s photographs creates a visual narrative of the lives of those individuals whose livelihood is directly dependent upon the Chesapeake Bay. His work is comprised of photographs of seasoned watermen, scenic seascapes, weathered workboats and bay bounty — a true and complete depiction of Chesapeake Bay life. Equal parts informative and aesthetically pleasing, Fleming’s authentic photographs are relevant to the history buff, the biologist, the photography fan, and the Chesapeake Bay lover alike. The exhibit includes pieces from Jay’s first book, “Working the Water,” and his forthcoming book “Island Life,” highlighting adventures on the Chesapeake Bay.
All of the artwork is for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Annapolis Maritime Museum and Park. Free admission during Museum hours.
“Given the subject matter of Jay’s work, we thought that there was no more appropriate a place for an exhibit of his works than the Annapolis Maritime Museum,” said Museum Executive Director, Alice Estrada. “We are thrilled to host this exhibit and consider it a seamless extension of our exhibits.”
EXHIBIT OPENING EXCEPTION: March 22, 2018 | 5pm to 7pm
