September 2012 Meeting

September 15, 2012 10:00 am

The Calvert Photography Club has the pleasure of hosting Cameron Davidson at our September 15th 2012 meeting. Cameron will joining us to talk about his photography and his new book Chesapeake.

Cameron has been shooting aerial photography of the Chesapeake over a period of twenty years. The view from this privileged vantage point reveals humans’ impact on the land and the water. It yields an abstract beauty that is seldom seen, from the seven bends of the Shenandoah River to the important marshlands and islands of the watershed. Davidson’s lens captures the changing seasons traced from the headwaters of the Susquehanna at Otsego Lake in Cooperstown, New York, to the mouth of the bay at Virginia Beach. Davidson’s poetic pictures bear witness to the bay’s vulnerability and the fragility of its future.

About Cameron

Cameron Davidson?Cameron lives in Northern Virginia, but has shot all over the world for clients including Vanity Fair, American Express Departures, National Geographic, Audubon and Smithsonian magazine. His work has been commissioned for advertising campaigns, annual reports and editorial features.

Sometimes he says that he is his own client - he’s been documenting the good work of the Community Coalition for Haiti for 13 years. Maybe his great-grandfather being Chief of the Bureau of Mines in West Virginia had something to do with his documenting how people treat the land. And maybe the fact that his mom, in 1962, was the first female helicopter traffic reporter at WWDC had something to do with his showing it from the air. (source: http://www.camerondavidson.com)
