Above the Chesapeake

For his new book, photographer Cameron Davidson covered the Chesapeake Bay watershed by air, from its beginnings at the Susquehanna River in New York and the mountains of West Virginia to its mouth at the Atlantic Ocean, exploring the Bay from north to south and examining the many ways we use its waters.

Known for his aerial photography, Cameron Davidson spent 20 years capturing the beauty and fragility of the Chesapeake Bay from above. These photos are from Chesapeake, his sixth book, out this month from the University of Virginia Press. © 2011 by Cameron Davidson.
