How much has the Chesapeake Bay changed over the past 75 years?
There are a number of ways to explore this question. Take a bird's eye view of the Bay from an airplane — and look at the photographs taken over time.
That's the idea behind 'The Bay From Above: Aerial Views of the Bay Then and Now', which juxtaposes the 1930s-1950s photography of H. Robins Hollyday with new photography by Hunter H. Harris. Hollyday worked as a commercial photographer from the 1930s to the 1950s. Harris' work focuses on land use and development. Contrasting Hollyday's black-and-white photographs with Harris's color images, this exhibition provides astoundingly beautiful and startling evidence of the changes in the Chesapeake's shoreline, farmland, and Bay spaces over the last 75 years.
