Annapolis: Photography of A. Aubrey Bodine (Hardcover)
Aubrey Bodine, pictorialist, modernist, and documentarian, was a Baltimore Sunday Sun feature photographer from 1924 to 1970. This book contains his vintage Annapolis, US Naval Academy, and Chesapeake Bay photographs, chronicling the mid-20th century in and around Maryland's state capital. These images demonstrate Bodine's pictorialist and modernist photographic eye for mansions, government buildings, city streets, and sailboat racing, encapsulating the essence of Annapolis from 1928 to 1970. Bodine published four books, wrote articles, judged Salons, won awards from all over the world, lectured across northeast America, and held down a full-time job at a major metropolitan newspaper. This is the fifth Bodine picture book assembled by his daughter, Jennifer. Their previous collaborations are Bodine's Chesapeake Bay Country, Bodine's City, Bodine's Industry, and Trains: Photography of A. Aubrey Bodine.
