Chesapeake Bay is rising twice as fast as the global average. The region’s relative sea level is projected to rise as much as two feet in the next 35 years and up to five feet or more by the end of the century. The goal of my journey to Chesapeake Bay was to record the lives of these remaining inhabitants and to document the erosion that is occurring.
On September 10, 2017, one of the most powerful hurricanes in recorded history struck the Lower Florida Keys. Ten months later people are still displaced, debris still lines the canals and pollution is evasive. I travelled to the Keys to document what is happening there in hopes to illuminate these pervasive issues, their cause and effect.
