THE COMING COAST

The Coming Coast documents a journey along the 11,000-mile coastline of the Chesapeake Bay as it may yet be in the year 2100.  Along the way, I use thick blue tape to mark the path of the coming coast as it snakes through neighborhoods, main streets, and storefronts that are sometimes miles away from the water.  Also, I meet and photograph a diverse group of people who are actively working to hold back and adapt to the rising tides.  The purpose of these portraits is to understand how individuals from different backgrounds, lifeways, and perspectives can, quite literally, find common ground and work together to protect a shared resource.
