A. Aubrey Bodine (1906-1970), former photographic director of the Sunday Sun Magazine, recorded his beloved state of Maryland for fifty years. The Baltimore pictorialist attended the Maryland Institute College of Art. He was awarded fellowships by both the Photographic Society of America and the National Press Photographers Association, making history as the first photographer to be so honored by his peers. With Stanley L. Cahn's assistance, Bodine published My Maryland, Chesapeake Bay and Tidewater, Face of Maryland, Face of Virginia, and Guide to Baltimore and Annapolis.

Jennifer B. Bodine was a trial lawyer, is a stained glass artist, mother, and her father's biggest fan. She compiled Bodine's Chesapeake Bay Country from thousands of A. Aubrey Bodine's photographs. She received a B.A. from the University of Maryland, a J.D. from the University of Baltimore, and an M.A. from Washington College. She and her husband run an Internet business reproducing A. Aubrey Bodine's photographs.

Bodine's Chesapeake Bay Country

Edited by Jennifer Bodine

“Photographing the United States was a big thrill, but I always get a bigger thrill when I make a picture of a fleet of dredge boats moving over an oyster bed on a beautiful autumn day.”
                                    A. Aubrey Bodine

Bodine's Chesapeake Bay Country is by and about A. Aubrey Bodine: Baltimore pictorialist, Sunpapers photographer, a Maryland treasure, and one of the greatest photographers of his time. Bodine's photographs chronicled nearly every aspect of Maryland life on the pages of the Baltimore Sunpapers from 1924 to 1970. This new volume, containing 286 digitally restored photographs, is divided into five Maryland areas: Baltimore and surrounds, Chesapeake Bay, Eastern Shore, Southern Maryland and Annapolis, and Western Maryland.

Bodine's first four books, My Maryland, Chesapeake Bay and Tidewater, Face of Maryland, Face of Virginia, published between 1952 and 1970, were immensely popular. For Bodine's Chesapeake Bay Country, editor Jennifer Bodine engaged specific essays and descriptions from her father's books, and selected the images that were Bodine's personal favorites or award winners. The Baltimore pictorialist won over a thousand awards in national and international competitions.

To fully capture the essence of A. Aubrey Bodine, photographs have also been gathered from his personal collection and the Baltimore Sun's extensive archive.
