Disappearing Islands Photo Camp Exhibit

On November 20th, National Geographic Photo Camp exhibited the work of 16 amazing young women from Photo Camp Smith Island 2011 – the first-ever all female Photo Camp, at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland.  The opening reception was fantastic, with students, families, and Baltimoreans alike reflecting on the still imagery and multimedia presentation that tells the story of what is happening to the islands of the Chesapeake Bay.  With rapid sea level rise, islands that litter the mouth of the bay, and whose way of life is dependent on the water, are quickly disappearing right before our very eyes.  These young women had the opportunity to document this story, and are now able to share it throughout Baltimore in this travelling exhibition.  Next stop, Stevenson University in January, opening reception January 19th, join us!
