VIDEO: Photographer Reveals Tangier, Smith Island Secrets

Chesapeake Bay photographer Jay Fleming has taken stunning— and haunting— pictures of the Bay’s smallest communities. He’s been given rare intimate access to Smith and Tangier Islands, shedding light on the rising water and shrinking land that threaten the residents of those islands.

At Annapolis Maritime Museum’s Winter Lecture Series this week, hundreds of people turned out to hear Fleming’s insider perspective, and to see his stunning photos.

Fleming, who is also a contributing photographer to Chesapeake Bay Magazine, shares what drives his projects with Bay Bulletin’s Cheryl Costello.
