What started as a simple request by the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum for members to submit personal photos and memories from the last 50 summers spent on the Bay for CBMM’s 50th anniversary celebration last year turned into a flood of images from all over the world. Over 250 photos came in; so many that the Museum’s education director Kate Livie and art director Marie Thomas decided that the photos themselves had the makings of an online exhibition.
In her interview with the Spy, Kate talks about the Snapshots to Selfies: 50 Years of Chesapeake Summers project and shares just a tiny example of the remarkable images submitted from all over the world. The exhibition can be seen here.
This video is approximately three minutes in length. It is followed by additional photographs and memories.
